Directors Talk-Professor Simon Olding: Crafting the Gallery

The short lecture ‘The role of the gallery: St Ives selling craft’ will consider how the specialist gallery of craft acts as a shop, a meeting-place and forum, and as a destination, and how the character and resources of the gallery directors, and their interplay with makers, sets the tone for the promotion of contemporary craft.

The lecture, by the Director of the Crafts Study Centre, presents early research focused on the founding history of the New Craftsman Gallery, St Ives, and the work of Breon O’Casey.

TICKETS : £5.00 - bookable in advance either in person at the Crafts Study Centre or by phoning 01252 891450
