CCHQ Weekly Round-up, 20 October 2017

We announced the galleries taking part in Collect 2017, an empowering South African collective and baroque paper wigs

What happened

35 galleries from four continents have been announced for Collect taking place on 22 – 25 Feb 2018.

Black History Month returned to celebrate its 30th anniversary. We spoke with 50 Golborne gallery about all-female collective Ubuhle who are empowering South African women through craft.

Meet the new generation of Hatton Garden jewellers hoping to shake things up in London’s historic diamond quarter.

Barque art vessels, knitted weave designs, vulcan clay pots and sound wave jewellery - we rounded up some of the new makers on the Crafts Council Directory.

What was said

“I don’t see my way of thinking as being restricted to one material, it’s more about working with interesting processes” said Peter Marigold, one of our Woman’s Hour Craft Prize finalists.

What was made

Russian paper artist Asya Kozina reinterprets baroque wigs with a modern flair.

What to look forward to

MADE LONDON is showcasing a range of makers across all media; ceramics, glass, wood, precious metals, textiles, and more this weekend.

And finally

Over 40 venues will be taking part in Make:Shift:Do, a nationwide programme of craft innovation workshops for children and young people on 27-28 October 2017.
