About:
CRAFTING CHANGE
New approaches to sustainable making
Crafting Change demonstrates how a diverse group of contemporary makers explore issues and definitions of sustainability, as they develop their practice into the 21st Century. Through the exhibition they want to open up discussion about the role of craft in our society – is the origin and provenance of objects becoming more important to us? Is the act of making just as important as the final product?

Crafting Change is the current exhibition in a series of Art Unpacked touring exhibitions. Art Unpacked is a project from Chrysalis Arts, bringing high quality contemporary art and craft exhibitions to venues across North Yorkshire, East Lancashire and East Riding of Yorkshire.

DISSOLVING MARGINS
Textilia 3 is an established group of contemporary textile artists based in the North of England. They have exhibited widely in Yorkshire, Lancashire and Cumbria over the last 22 years, since the group was first formed. The artists in Textilia 3 use many diverse techniques to produce abstract, figurative and decorative pieces, wall art, 3D and wearable art. The exhibition takes inspiration from the theme Dissolving Margins in many different ways: from historical events, humanitarian issues- to physical ideas of coastal erosion and the interaction between wild and manmade/managed landscapes.
