The New Craftsmen at Collect 2023

Exceptionally proud and honoured to have been invited to show with The New Craftsmen at Crafts Council Collect 2023, Somerset House, this March! Thank you to Sarah Myerscough & Kathy Lacour for your kind invitation to represent and curate my sustainable, narrative textiles as part of your vision for Collect;

‘Grown in Britain’ encapsulates a biophilic interior landscape of furniture, lighting, and objects. This display of handcrafted work showcases some of Britain’s finest craftspeople and reflects on their passion for storytelling that speaks of place through working with natural grown regional materials and a shared gentle sensibility that intrinsically binds us all to the natural landscape of the British Isles.

  • Darren Appiagye (wood)
  • Max Bainbridge (wood)
  • Aimee Betts (embroidery, furniture, multidisciplines)
