"The exhibition features work from UK based upholsterers who are redefining the traditional preconceived role of the upholsterer, combining traditional craft skills with contemporary thinking. Taking the form of a physical timeline the exhibition maps the changes and developments within the craft to include techniques, materials and upholsterers stories. Works are multi disciplinary, from furniture, to photography, to film, tackling activism, social commentary, materiality and the throwaway culture."
