What's happening at this month's meeting?
Visit I AM HERE at the Hospital Club and hear all about the exhibition from Crafts Council's Head of Exhibitions & Collections, Annabelle Campbell.

I AM HERE is a Crafts Council touring exhibition of contemporary jewellery. Featuring almost 100 works of exciting and innovative studio jewellery created by the most significant British and international makers of the last five decades - each piece a powerful reflection of the spirit of its generation and acting as a precedent for the future. Alongside works from the Crafts Council Collection of more than 400  pieces of British jewellery there are works borrowed from mima, Galerie Marzee, Gallery S O and Pangolin London
Jewellery is the most intimate of art forms.  It is a dialogue of shared meaning between wearer and maker. While all the works on display relate to the body, that’s where our familiar understanding of jewellery ends.  Some of the pieces have been constructed using materials as diverse as concrete and broken bottles, nails, ice, plastic, wallpaper, cork, paper, rubber, volcano lava.
