Truth to Materials

MA Craft and Textiles Exhibition

Sat 23 July - Sun 24 July

The graduates from MA Craft and MA Textiles present examples of their practice with underpinning research and development, showing why the craft and textile making process is so important in contemporary life and how they explore themes and issues through materials.In this show you will see a diverse range of motivations and themes explored through weave, fabric and three-dimensional pieces.

Projects from the 2022 graduating cohort include: handmade modular furniture featuring a personal and contemporary take on traditional Korean motifs; experimental, narrative-driven ceramics themed around the significance of particular animals; interactive toys made from wood and wool, inspired by and connected to a particular Italian valley; ceramic tableware that captures the joy of Mediterranean seaside memories; large ceramic vessels exploring the idea of marginal places and precariousness; a suit of hand-dyed and woven fabrics capturing a fascination with graffiti in the urban environment; Experimental tartan colour ways, and a collection of ceramic vessels reflecting a detailed process of gathering and working with locally-sourced clay.

There is a concern throughout this work with the impact of materials, making processes and artifacts on our daily lives.

These works will be on display at the museum for Truth to Materials, 23 – 24 July 2022 and available to view as part of an online exhibition.
