Gaining Ground: How ancient craft knowledge can shape our future
May 10th 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm£10
To mark the launch of the May/June issue of Crafts magazine and the opening of the Crafts Council’s new exhibition Gaining Ground, the Crafts Council Gallery is hosting a discussion about how traditional craft practices can help repair our ecosystems and societies.
Hear from two exhibitors from the show: QEST D’Oyly Carte Charitable Trust Scholar basketmaker Annemarie O’Sullivan, who grows 20 varieties of willow near her East Sussex studio, and ceramic artist Jay Mistry, who has been collaborating with potters in Guyana to preserve Indigenous identity through clay. They will be joined by Daniel Olatunji, founder of the slow fashion menswear label Monad London, which works with artisans using traditional craft techniques across the globe. The talk will be chaired by Crafts magazine.
