Saturday 20 September – Sunday 9 November

The exhibition
celebrates home-grown making by showcasing the work of contemporary craftmakers who use materials which are locally distinct, natural or recycled. Taking inspiration from the Dorset charity Common Ground's idea of 'local distinctiveness' - the show   explores local heritage and environment through different crafts - from traditional skills and resources, to contemporary installations.
