The makers are the focus of our work at Bdc and we believe there is nothing more inspiring than the opportunity to hear a maker talk about their work and studio practice, or give a demonstration. Our programme of maker talks animate the work we display and offers a greater level of appreciation and understanding of the materials, processes, skills and technologies of contemporary craft.
Our guided visits are curated with Bdc Assistant Director Fran Gill-Smith, trustee and printmaker Gill Curry and local jeweller Linda Jones. Our programme includes visits to other venues to see new exhibitions, maker studios or places of architectural interest, often supported by curator and maker talks. Our intention is to introduce our Friends of the Bdc, regular attenders and new audiences to other craft related events as well as the opportunity to visit new venues and the wider arts scene.
