‘Crafted’, Huyton Gallery, 16 July – 7 October 2012
Knowsley Arts & Heritage Service is delighted to present ‘Crafted’ at Huyton Gallery.
‘Crafted’ is a celebration of contemporary craft makers, with particular emphasis on innovative design practices.
After its success at Kirkby Gallery in 2010, ‘Crafted’ is to be a biennial exhibition for Knowsley Arts Heritage Service, and will take place every two years in either Huyton or Kirkby Gallery. This year the show will be in Huyton Gallery for the first time and adopts a new slant, which will be about presenting the work of established makers alongside aspiring new talent. The exhibition will display a diverse range of crafts including ceramics, textiles furniture and glass from celebrated designer makers: Halima Cassell, Victoria Scholes, Tom Sutton, Sara Priesler, Egerton & Soteriou, Peter Slight and Cathy Carr.
The Leisure & Culture Service is excited to announce that we will be awarding selected graduates from the Bachelor of Design course at Liverpool Hope University an opportunity to exhibit alongside established and celebrated makers. There will be a series of talks and workshops run by the graduates discussing their work and inspirations. To book onto these please contact Tina Ball on 0151 443 5619, or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Many of the works on display are available to purchase.
There will be a Private View event taking place on Thursday 19 July, 4.00-6.00pm. If you would like to attend the Private View, please RSVP to Tina Ball on 0151 443 5619 or email email@example.com
