This new exhibition brings the work of Chien-Wei Chang to the Crafts Study Centre with his first one person show at Farnham

Chien-Wei Chang describes how he loves metal 'because of the characteristics of the material and the process of making it work: treating it with fire to anneal it, using hammers to translate the invisible ideas into visual forms and bathing it in water to cleanse it. When I place metal, especially silver into acid to purify it and turn it white, it feels as though I have completed a personal ritual - almost like a baptism'.
