Norfolk Contemporary Crafts Society Annual exhibition
Norwich Cathedral Hostry
November 26 – December 8, 2015
Norfolk Contemporary Craft Society’s annual exhibition “Inspired” will be held in The Hostry of Norwich Cathedral again this winter.
“Inspired 2015” will include two new members; Julia Richardson, a stained glass artist and Anna Martin, one of the UK’s few studio based artists working in the medium of Gun Tufted rugs. Anna uses a hand-tufting gun which pushes wool through a backing cloth to create a thick pile. This method gives Anna the freedom to literally paint with wool and her work shows a wonderful sense of fluidity and spontaneity which this method can produce.
The NCCS ‘Inspired’ exhibition is always a highlight of the society’s calendar with about twenty-five member’s exhibiting their work in the Hostry’s beautiful contemporary space in Norwich Cathedral. As always, this exhibition promises to showcase innovation and tradition side by side, complementing this lovely crafted space.
The exhibition runs from Thursday 26 November to Monday 8 December at the Norwich Cathedral’s Hostry, with the Private view starting at 6pm on Wednesday 25 November.
Norfolk Contemporary Craft Society (NCCS) is the leading Norfolk association of designer-makers. Members encompass traditional to cutting-edge designer crafts.
The NCCS was founded in 1972 to:
Set and reflect high standards in craft works
Provide opportunities for members to interact socially, while encouraging continuing, professional development
Raise public awareness of good design and high quality in small scale production
“Our intention in establishing the Society in 1972 was to give encouragement and support to contemporary craftsmen especially those living in Norfolk, and to increase public awareness of their work. Our emphasis has always been on quality of design and workmanship with, ideally, a perfect union of the two”. Francis Cheetham one of the founding members
