The Future of Craft – London Craft Week 9th-12th May
Bargehouse, Oxo Tower Wharf
Michelle will be creating new textile artworks for this brand new show as part of London Craft Week in May.
Curated by Oxo Tower Wharf, a carefully selected line up of innovative and forward-thinking craft organisations, practitioners and collectives will be presented across five floors in the raw, industrial settings of Bargehouse.
The Future of Craft has been conceived alongside project collaborators Design-Nation and Future Icons who will each present headline installations at the show. Design-Nation will showcase new projects and products by leading makers from across their portfolio including Amy Leigh, Christine Meyer-Eaglestone, Emma-Jane Rule, Georgia Bosson, Jacky Puzey, Jacqueline James, Julie Vernon, Lucy Elisabeth, Leszek Sikon, Linda Bloomfield, Maria Sigma, Michelle House, Raw Studio, Speckled Grey and Susannah Weiland.
Future Icons will present a curated mix of new and established hand-crafted projects by sixteen interior led artists across ceramics, furniture, lighting, metalwork and textiles including Vezzini & Chen, RHMB, Barnaby Goode, Richard McVetis, Jo Davies and Cristabel Balfour.
Elsewhere in the building, visitors will enjoy installations and demonstrations from craftspeople including Fung & Bedford, Helen Yardley, Margo Selby, Sarah Villeneau, Angie Parker and Anna Gravelle as well as an Interactive installation of Catinca Tilea’s #1minutelamp.
The Future of Craft will host a thought-provoking talks programme including a one-day seminar hosted by Ceramics Research Centre-UK, and group discussions and presentations that will address topics such as Future Craft and Culture.
Visitors will also have the chance to get involved with hands-on craft workshops.
