A celebration of over 50 makers with three distinctive elements – a showcase, shop and series of workshops. Taking craft out of the market-stall setting, objects are exhibited in thoughtful still lifes, whilst workshops take place within the gallery. A private view is held on Thursday 9 May.

The showcase is a curated selection of makers’ works displayed in thoughtful still lifes, mixing media and giving objects the space they deserve. The 50 makers involved include tapestry weaver Christabel Balfour, wood-block printer Louisa Loakes and ceramicists Hannah Bould and Lily Pearmain.

Workshops are hosted by talented makers in the exhibition space. From natural dying to still-life drawing, the space is always alive with the hum of conversations and making. The main workshop space is in a semi-private area of the gallery, allowing for quiet whilst still letting visitors walk around and see what’s happening. A selection of workshops are free to take part in.

The shop lets visitors take a piece of the handmade home.

The event is organised by two south-east London makers, Chloe Phelps and Rachael Pilston.
