IN PRAISE OF MAKERS

3rd July - September 2021

Colne Valley Museum, Golcar, West Yorkshire 

(solo exhibition)

​IN PRAISE OF MAKERS celebrates the history, politics and craft of this unique part of Britain.  A vibrant and politically active community of makers has shaped the identity of the Colne Valley for over 300 years and new generations continue to draw inspiration from these trailblazers. A collection of new collaborative works echo and respond to the form and purpose of traditional objects often found in the homes of 19th century makers of the region.

IN PRAISE OF MAKERS is one of Arts&Heritage’s 6 Meeting Point projects that will open in the North West, Yorkshire and the North East during the summer of 2021
