This event will be hosted by Accredited Professional ceramic member Julie Bartholomew and will also include Jo Victoria, Sue Hewat. Moraig McKenna and Anne Masters.

c/o Craft ACT: 2020 Annual Members exhibition will showcase current trends in contemporary craft and design and illustrate how care underpins a maker’s commitments.

In line with the theme of the 7th edition of DESIGN Canberra (9-29 November 2020), the 2020 Craft ACT members exhibition will celebrate and explore the ways that care and caring is valuable and vital for contemporary craft practitioners, artists, designers and makers.

For the craft sector, as Kevin Murray (independent craft writer and curator) acknowledges, ‘The entry requirement for craft is a universal human capacity — care. This care for the world in using the gifts of nature to sustain and give meaning to our shared existence is an ideal to be found in all cultures.’

Curated by Craft ACT, this is showcase exhibition demonstrating the trends in contemporary craft and design in Australia by accredited practitioners from the ACT and surrounding region.

Craft ACT is taking precautionary approaches to managing the spread of COVID-19, which is in line with the latest national and local health advice. To attend this event bookings are essential.
