The exhibition, the first time Craft Northern Ireland has exhibited overseas, is aimed at showcasing the work of the country’s best designer-makers. The exhibition also offers a ‘show within a show’ featuring the work of 13 handpicked artisans titled Perspective: Inspiration Unveiled.
Supported by the Creative Industries Innovation Fund, the event aims to develop the partnership between Craft Northern Ireland and Craft Central, as well as broker new partnerships with other leading London-based craft organisations.
Director of the Goldsmiths’ Centre Peter Taylor said of the event: “I am delighted to be supporting such a strong group of jewellers showcasing a broad range of skills. I hope that the opportunity to show their work to a new market of buyers and galleries will lead to some on-going relationships for these Northern Irish makers.”
