Northern Design Festival 2016: Hothouse

I’m excited to announce that I will be showing my embroidered room screen, The Hare Screen as part of the Hothouse exhibition at Northern Design Festival 2016.

This exhibition takes place at The Assembly House, Newcastle, from October 7th-16th 2016. I’m really happy to be showing alongside friends and colleagues from this year’s Hothouse, the Crafts Council’s scheme for emerging makers, developing the contemporary crafts businesses of the future.

Follow us on social media using #NDesignFest and #Hothouse2016 to see news about this show.



A selection of work by the hottest makers from across the UK.

Featuring ambitious and talented makers and designers who have recently set up their studios, we are showcasing fresh ideas, craft, design and celebrating material culture, showing the work of makers with varied approaches, from throwing on the potter’s wheel with a colour-popping twist, to the marriage of drawing and machine embroidery.

Combining distinct craft skills with the careful selection of materials, this exhibition features stunning ceramics, jewellery, furniture and textiles by the names of the future.
