This touring exhibition at Walford Mill Crafts, Stone Lane, Wimborne, Dorset, BH21 1NL has now closed.
Please have a look at this blog post about the Arts University Bournemouth’s work with Two Make:
What a wonderful finale for the two Make exhibition tour.
Two Make plots the shared output of ten pairs of established designer / makers who have created new work together. The partnerships are diverse, ranging from life-long friends who live in different parts of the country, makers working together for the first time, and makers who wanted to learn new skills.
Two Make explores the process of collaboration: sharing ideas, working through problems, encountering risk, and exploring uncertainty.
Each pair’s creative journeys are plotted by their drawings, photographs, recorded conversations, samples and maquettes and are shown in this touring exhibition as part of a wider project that explores cooperation within craft communities of practice, particularly drawing on the role of regional craft guilds and associations in supporting craft practitioner’s livelihoods.
