The New Materiality

A Crafts Council showcase presented at Tresor Craft fair in Basel, 21-24 September 2017.

Seven artists with an innovative approach to materials have been selected to show new works, each using their chosen materials to communicate ideas and research, whether it be commenting on the growing refugee crisis, the availability of raw materials in the future, exploring new ways of dying textiles in a sustainable way, creating pattern or discovering new forms for furniture. The New Materiality is the third showcase of the A Future Made programme and will take place at the TRESOR contemporary craft fair

The selected artists are: Adam Guy Blencowe, Natsai Audrey Chieza, James Shaw, Esna Su, The Colour of Hair, Yesenia Thibault-Picazo and Laura Youngson Coll.
