‘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’.
