Synchronise: Creating Craft Collaborations
Categories: Design Factory Member News , Design Factory News, Exhibitions

Roof Gallery exhibition at The National Centre for Craft & Design
9 March - 2 June 2013

The National Centre for Craft & Design is excited to be presenting an exhibition showcasing well known East Midlands makers with national reputations.

20 members of Design Factory have embraced the challenge to collaborate with each other in order to stimulate exciting developments within their own creative practices, encourage skill-sharing and create new work specifically for this exhibition.

The members have collaborated on 12 projects all interpreting the idea of collaboration in different ways. Some have worked together and used their individual skills to make a combined piece or body of work; others have "swapped" materials; some have learnt a new skill or been inspired by their chosen collaborative partner to work in a different scale.

The exhibition will display a fresh merging of media and disciplines including textiles and ceramics; jewellery and ceramics; textiles and furniture. Showcasing makers include:
Jan Garside, Clare Gage, Gizella K Warburton, Gillian Lee Smith, Pete Moss, Ruth Singer, Alys Power, Ann Povey, Kate McBride, Anna Collette Hunt, Phiona Richards, Karen Atherley, J C Middlebrook, Milly Moore, Suet Yi Yip, Katie Almond, Debbie Bryan, Ashi Marwaha, Samantha Robinson and Sharyn Dunn.

Synchronise will open on 9 March until 2 June 2013 in the Roof Gallery, The National Centre for Craft & Design.
