QEST will return to the leading international contemporary craft and design fair in 2022 with Material Masters, an exhibition featuring pieces by ten QEST Scholars working across a wide range of materials – a snapshot of the broad selection of crafts the charity supports. Each maker has an individual voice, but they are united in their passion for their craft and devotion to mastering their chosen material, as evidenced in these wonderfully crafted objects.
Curated by Brian Kennedy, the showcase investigates what has drawn each maker to their material, the unique challenges each material presents along with the skills required to overcome these, and the role that QEST has played on each maker’s journey to becoming a material master. Selected materials range from porcelain to paper, fleece to glass, thread to slate and more.
