Crafts Council and The New Craftsmen present Nature Lab

An immersive installation of contemporary British craft at Design Miami/ Basel 2016

Nature Lab was the debut showcase of A Future Made - an immersive experience which tells the story of nature transformed by six craft talents.

In Nature Lab, wild and encroaching nature is transmuted by skilled hands and ingenious minds into elemental objects that emerge from the darkness to conjure wonder and intrigue. The six makers in Nature Lab are Eleanor Lakelin; Emily Gardiner; Jochen Holz; Joseph Harrington; Marcin Rusak; and Marlène Huissoud. Nature Lab is the first showcase within A Future Made – a partnership between the Crafts Council, The New Craftsmen, Craft Scotland and Ruthin Craft Centre aimed at raising the profile of British craft via international design fairs.
