Join me to make your own advent stars at Manchester Art Gallery  

My glass and ceramics work is featured in the gallery’s current Nordic Craft and Design exhibition. Scandinavia has a long tradition with making paper decorations for Christmas, and over the last couple of weeks I have done sessions with staff, volunteers and the public. The next one coming up is 5th December, between 4.30-7.30 during the galleries pop up Christmas craft market. Using only paper, scissors and glue here I will demonstrate how you can turn a single piece of paper into a beautiful 3-D structured decoration.

This session is free, no need to book just drop in.

Nordic Craft and Design at Manchester Art Gallery

Nordic Craft and Design at Manchester Art Gallery

On 6th of July opens Nordic Craft and Design at Manchester Art Gallery. I'm pleased that 12 of my pieces have curated into this exhibition, including a drinking glass collection, architectural vases and a set of stoneware plates. Very excited to be exhibiting my work next to Scandinavian design heavyweights like Alvor Alto, Tapio Wirkkala and Arne Jacobson. If you can't make it down to the preview on the 5th July, it's plenty of time to catch it as it's on for a whole year.

Showcasing furniture, fashion, lighting, ceramics, glass, metalwork and jewellery, Nordic Craft and Design highlights the superb quality and creativity inherent in design from the region and features pieces from 1930 to the present day. Designers and crafts people from Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden will be represented, as well as other makers who are inspired by Nordic design.
