Gillian Bencke, Remember That Time You Thought You Were a Fighter, 2021

Everyday Deity

‘As the climate crisis accelerates, sustainable design is no longer enough - we need to restore the damage humanity has done to the planet’, Crafts magazine UK.

Everyday Deity artists, Soraya Abidin, Clayton Barr, Gillian Bencke, Marianne Bohdan, Morgan Dick, Sai-Wai Foo, Tina Fox and Christina Newberry, delve into the inner and outer realms of regenerative crafts.

Through conscious acts of making, artists seek to shift the way we interact with and understand craft.

'We must understand and become engaged with the way that things are made. Without this fundamental learning, we cannot be expected to respect and honour the daily things that we possess and to understand the skill and processes that go into creating them.'

With a process-orientated awareness, Everyday Deity artists honour individual rituals of making and contributions to climate restoration. Join us for our opening night as part of Craft Up Late.

Details: Exhibition Thursday 13 October – Sunday 23 October, Thursdays – Sundays 11am – 4pm; Craft Up Late Opening night, Thursday 13 October, 6 – 8pm
