Amanda Richardson, detail 'Sunflowers and Grasses, textile print collageMaterials Matter – Summer craft exhibition
Saturday 21 June – Sunday 7 September

A Devon Guild of Craftsmen Membership Exhibition
The annual Members’ summer exhibition is an important one for our Membership as it is an opportunity for them to produce their best new work. It is also unique in the Guild exhibition calendar as the work on display has been chosen by a specially selected group from within the Membership. 

This year’s exhibition will take the opportunity to celebrate the diversity of materials chosen and used by the Members of the Guild. The exhibition will inform visitors that materials do indeed matter to these makers.  Through individual statements, information panels and by having examples of raw materials on display the exhibition will tell stories of why each maker has chosen a certain material.

Woven silk yarn and wood being carvedPerhaps it is because they live where a material grows like willow or is found naturally, like clay, or they use a by-product of an industry they are associated with such as wool from sheep or wood from tree surgery. By visiting this exhibition you will gain a unique insight into a selection of our leading craftspeople from the South West and find out why Materials Matter to them.

Mike Tingle beaten copper framed headsMike Tingle - Framed, metal sculptures
28 June - 18 August

Guild member Mike Tingle is showcasing a special selection of new work called 'HEADS'.

Mike says: 'Cutting, hammering, painting, abrading these metal objects I feel like Prometheus creating a race of Copperheads. They have a life, and look back at me from their coloured boxframes. These mask-like constructions exude a sense of joy and mystery; they open up a pathway that leads back to origins'.
