Today's idea - Craftivists! Subversive sewing! And anarchist ceramicists!
Today, the first in a short flurry of arty things. The Ink_d Gallery "goes all 3D for their next show" which brings a select group of British artists together to walk, with a subversive nature of course, the fine line between craft and fine art.
"These artisans working in ceramics, glassware, mosaic, embroidery and fabrics are not just making beautiful handmade objects but also have something to say. Their messages are political, social and hard hitting. Anarchist ceramicists! Craftivists! Subversive sewing! You get the idea.
All these artists are brought together as their work answers a nagging in all of us: The need for a bit of subversion! In the words of Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness “The Revolution will be ceramicised”."
The gallery's open from 10am-6pm, Monday to Sturday, and Sunday from 12-4pm. More info on today's idea can be found here.
