What's on listing

‘Two Make’ plots the shared output of ten pairs of established makers who have created new work together. It explores the process of collaboration: sharing ideas, working through problems, encountering risk, and exploring uncertainty. The exhibition is part of a wider project that explores cooperation within craft communities of practice, particularly drawing on the role of regional craft guilds and associations in supporting crafts practitioners livelihoods. Two Make emerged from the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen as a way to celebrate their spirit of cooperation, and as a way of stimulating and enhancing the practice of current members. Working together is hard work and this exhibition explores this journey: creatively and emotionally, through the materials and words of the makers.

Curated by Miranda Leonard in partnership with Dr. Nicola Thomas, University of Exeter and the Gloucestershire Guild of Craftsmen. The exhibition is supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council and Arts Council England.
