Collect

I’ve just received a press release announcing the line up for this year’s Collect and thought I should share it with SIT’s followers forthwith so that you can all start saving both dates and funds. Collect, now in its 10th year, is a selling exhibition of premium quality contemporary craft organised by the Crafts Council (www.craftscouncil.org.uk) and this year sees a line up of 36 internationally-acclaimed galleries showing exquisite work from across all craft disciplines. My personal highlights are  Garniture of Nine Vases, 2013 by Andrew Wicks who is represented by Adrian Sassoon  and Liz Blavarpz’s Purple Necklace, 2013. (Galerie Format)

Running alongside the main show is Project Space, an alternative exhibition showcasing seven leading makers, two of whom are close friends of SIT. Stroud-based ceramic artist Cleo Mussi www.mussimosaics.co.uk will be showing an installation of seven life-sized mosaic figures made from reclaimed ceramic while tapestry artist and SIT patron Jilly Edwards www.jillyedwards.co.uk will be be there with some of her joyous new work.

  1. Hi, I am signed up for your blog and newsletter and not receiving either. I have joined SIT mainly so I don’t miss out on the workshops, please can you ensure that I am on all your mailing lists. Thanks
