As one of the leading contemporary British Craft collections in the UK, the Crafts Council collection is now the UK's foremost collection of contemporary craft, embracing all disciplines and featuring the most important makers of the last 40 years. Beginning in the Cellar Gallery, view objects from the Crafts Council Collection that spiral around the building, interlaced with fine art and international craft from Bradford's own collections.
Who are the current contemporary makers in the UK and internationally? This exhibition explores materials, designs and technologies present in contemporary craft. With a strong history of wool, Bradford is the perfect place to investigate how the process of 'knit' has developed and inspired. From the science to the skill, through to the pure design eyes of our contemporary makers, come and see and experience craft - you will be very inspired!
