Makers & Tools is a collaborative making project exploring the relationship between craft makers and their tools.

The project connects six contemporary craft makers in the early stages of their careers, who undertook a non-verbal conversation through an exchange of objects.

The exhibition and programme of events opens up the conversation and asks: “What happens if a maker doesn’t choose their tools? What if they are gifted a tool created by another maker? What effect does this seemingly benign intervention have on their making process, and what possibilities does this allow?”

Join us to discover the results!

Includes new work by:
Christabel Balfour - artist & weaver
Harriet Elkerton - ceramicist
Tim Evershed - furniture designer & maker
Rachel Jones-Jones - artist & jeweller
Angie Packer - glass artist
Katy Welsh - print designer

Makers & Tools is coordinated & curated by Melody Vaughan. It is funded in part by Arts Council England.
