The word "craft" has historically been more closely related to domestic chores than fine art practice. Regarded as women's work embroidery, sewing or knitting were practical skills for the home and family; excluded from the sphere of art history. This exhibition explores the past and present of craft-based contemporary art; considering how we can rewrite women's stories in art history by re-evaluating the significance of craft-based artworks and celebrating the contemporary engagement with craft techniques. ‚ÄčThe programme will also include opportunities for audiences to learn traditional and contemporary applications of craft.
