‘Cut in Clerkenwell’ at Craft Central, London
This was a two-week celebration of hand engraving with talks, workshops, demonstrations and an exhibition of the first Paperweights Collection created by members. Over a hundred people participated in the workshops including crafts professionals, students and the general public. Many more dropped in to chat to hand engravers and enjoy the exhibition of members’ work which demonstrated the wide variety and skill of British contemporary hand engraving.
Griselda Bear was the Project Manager working with most members of the Association and a large team of volunteers. The project was funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, Craft Central, The Goldsmiths’ Company, The Clockmakers’ Company and the Ernest Cook Trust.
