Beautifully Crafted

Opens 25 October ’08 – 22 February ’09

‘Beautifully Crafted’ is a showcase of ingenuity, exquisite workmanship, innovation and delight, that explores the way contemporary artists and designers create works that fuse cultural histories and ancient techniques with new technologies and new ways of working. This exhibition pays homage to artisan techniques, from glass making to taxidermy, lace making to marquetry, and objects that have been created with meticulous attention to ‘making’.


Winter Has Come

December 7, 2008

-8 Last night. It is very very cold.

Picture says it all. Main roads now clear but village side roads still messy.

My neighbours duck swimming through the snow to beg for some breakfast

Always wonderful the see the familiar made unfamiliar and the invisible made visible.


The Band Room / Jollie Holland

December 2, 2008

Excellent night again. Amazing voice, and great performance by Jollie despite being a band member down and not at full parr. Thanks to the Brooks again for organising the night. Did feel a little apprehensive setting off across the moors in thick ice and freezing fog… but it was well worth it the journey. The Band Room is worth a visit.
