The Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair showcases the latest work by some of the UK’s most exciting designer-makers. The event also plays host to the Great Northern Graduates which presents the best emerging talent from this summer’s degree shows, selected by curator Suzy Jones.
For the first time, the event will host a series of talks by prominent figures from the contemporary craft world. Speakers already confirmed include embroiderer Louise Gardiner, who was commissioned to produce work for the Project Space at COLLECT this year, and Ceramicist Sharon Blakey who will be talking about her research project and collection inspired by the Mary Greg Collection of Handicrafts of Bygone Times based at Manchester Art Gallery.
