The Crypt Gallery, St Pancras Church, Euston Road, London, NW1 2BA

Opening Reception | Wednesday 6 May | 6.00 - 8.30 

13 contemporary artists, 13 highly skilled craftsmen, 1 extraordinary collaborative exhibition inspired by the overarching theme of the inaugural London Craft Week; ‘London’s Hidden Craft’, MAKE / CREATE will feature 13 craft scholars from Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST) and 13 fine artists, selected by Griffin Gallery, in dialogue with each other.  The spirit of the exhibition lies in the desire to demonstrate the contemporary nature of craft, and the craft involved in contemporary art – changing perceptions of both.

The selected craftsmen and artists were placed in pairs by a judging panel that included Julia Robinson of QEST, Becca Pelly-Fry, Director of Griffin Gallery, Rebecca Byrne, Events Manager of Griffin Gallery, Steve Macleod, photographer and Director of Metro Imaging, and Richard Edwards, Visual Arts and Craft Lead for Arts Council England.
