September 8 @ 11:00 am - 5:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 11:00am, repeating until 19-09-2018
This year’s Highlights Contemporary Craft Tour, Craft and Conflict t takes the theme of conflict in its broadest interpretation, not only marking the 100th anniversary of the end of WW1 but also exploring ideas of rural conflicts, refugees from war and even family conflicts.
Bringing together work from 12 artists from Syria, Sweden, Sri Lanka and the UK (including three from Highlights’ home county of Cumbria), Craft+Conflict will include an exciting variety of media including ceramics, enamel, film and video, resin and textiles. In parallel, in association with Aileen Brindle of f.o.a.k. (few of a kind collection) work designed and made by refugees supported by the UNHCR’s MADE51 programme will also be exhibited and on sale.
