'praktis 2018 Exhibition
Mind and matter: the making of craft
11th to 14th October 2018, 10am to 5pm
Sixteen craftsmen from around Britain are exhibiting their work together in the beautiful setting of Bury Court Barn in October.
The exhibitors are experienced, renowned craftsmen in the fields of ceramics, glass, wood, willow, jewellery and textiles who exhibit nationwide, and have come together to show pieces for sale or commission, but also to reveal their thinking, their inspiration and working methods in practical demonstrations and illustrated talks during the exhibition.
The importance of the making process – the consideration, the preparation and the sheer repetition of creating something by hand, all play an equal part in the finished object. Some crafts require physical strength, some minute concentration and others a fluidity of action, and in all cases it is the process of making items over and over again that encourages the maker to strive towards perfection and do better each time.
