Makers’ Tale 2021
Makers’ Tale exhibition examines craft and making as a highly relevant component of contemporary life.
This exhibition concentrates on presenting new insights into particular craft methods which are deeply rooted in a historical context yet connected to today. It presents them as the conveyors of new ideas, as the conductors of disciplinary crossovers, and will highlight the persistence of craft knowledge within the context of modern creative industries.
The exhibition artists are Hermione Thomson (textiles), Peta Jacobs (textiles), Manuela Kagerbauer (metal), Michelle Shields (ceramics) and Cara Wassenberg (glass and metal) and composer Dr Harry Whalley together with composer Akira Sileas and Cellist Anna Menzies. The exhibition further includes the work by recent UCA graduates Charlotte Bull, Wendy Irving, Lizzie Lovell, Katie Sims, Eleanor Cocking and Jamie Dunlop Valentine created in response to behind the scenes visit to Salisbury Cathedral in January 2020.
Makers’ Tale is co-curated with Loucia Manopoulou PHD candidate UCA Farnham. The exhibition is a result of cooperation between Wiltshire Creative and The University for the Creative Arts, Farnham, in association with Salisbury Cathedral.
