Jason TaylorWe have some long awaited exhibitions openning this month. Jason Taylor's "Everyday Objects" is one of our favourite exhibitons of this year's programme. Jason set himself a challenge for 2012; he would make an object everday using everyday objects. His playful designs inspire and intrigue us. The exhibition is rich in education opportunities; covering themes of recycling, design and examining the qualities and productivity of everyday objects. Below are some fun examples Jason's work:

Jo SmithWe have some stunning textile work in the shape of Jo Smith's first solo exhibition "Two Brother's, Three Sister's, A Mouse and Some Unfortunate Birds":
Combining print, textiles and stitch-work, Jo's exhibition tells tales of the loss, sorrow and suffering of pets in the home environment. Some of the work is set out as small installations with furniture and household items, making the work seem more haunting and real.
There is the opportunity to have Jo Smith deliver education workshops,on request. Please contact us for more information.
"Deities at the Bottom of the Garden" is proving a very successful exhibition, with education workshops attached. Richard's miniature sheds feature in our new workshop "Hidden Treasures" which explores religious education, egyptian artefacts and precious objects.
