A touring exhibition from the Jerwood Visual Arts programme at Jerwood Space, London.

Jerwood Makers Open is a biennial opportunity encouraging ambitious and/or radical pro-posals from UK-based makers and collaborators within 10 years of beginning their practice. Launched in 2010, it focusses on makers and making, supporting work in a diverse range of materials and progressive practices. 

Following a national call which elicited 271 submissions, Sam Bakewell, Juli BolaƱos-Durman, Jessica Harrison, Marcin Rusak and Laura Youngson Coll were selected and each received an award of £7,500 to realise and make new work along with mentoring and cura-torial support for a national touring exhibition.  The selected makers show works in wood; glass; parian porcelain; shellack, steel and organic waste; and vellum.

The artists were selected by an independent panel comprising Deirdre Figueiredo MBE, Di-rector, Craftspace, alongside Skinder Hundal, CEO/Director, New Art Exchange; Geoffrey Mann, artist and Programme Director, Glass at Edinburgh College of Art; Clare Twomey, artist, and Sarah Williams, Head of Programme, Jerwood Visual Arts.

Open daily, free entry. 10am-5.30pm
