Growing: Celebrating our past, exploring our future

Last week I visited The National Centre for Craft and Design and got a chance to visit their current exhibition Growing: Celebrating our past, exploring our future. This exhibition has been hosted to celebrate the centre’s 10th Birthday!

‘Growing ‘takes its lead from the very first exhibition we held in 2003, called ‘What is Craft?’ Ten years on, we’ve invited leading figures in the sphere of contemporary craft and design, artists, curators, writers and influencers, to nominate work by emerging and established artists who will be the innovators of the future. Over thirty artists have been proposed by our nominators to create an exhibition demonstrating a wide range of craft media and forms: textiles, ceramics, glass, jewellery, basketry, furniture and millinery.”

I only had my phone but managed to get a few photo’s of some of my favourite pieces. There is an amazing range of work on display so make sure you get a chance to visit.

I was also able to visit Anna Krystyna Casey solo exhibition in the roof gallery. Definitely worth a visit!
