SPRING is a new exhibition which presents the creations of talented Designer Makers and Artists who are passionate about crafts. The works on display all draw their inspiration from the exquisite beauty of nature; whether through colours, textures, forms or materials. Although each exhibitor represents a different discipline, there is commonality in theme, skill, creativity, aesthetics and the highest quality craftsmanship.

Exhibitors:

Each piece is inspired by the aesthetic of natural forms, textures and materials reflecting the beauty of nature captured in the moment of contemplation.
