Meet the artists from Craft & Contemporary Design

Be inspired on Friday 20th October by meeting some of the most exciting contemporary artists and craftspeople working today 

As part of our Craft & Contemporary Design exhibition at 201 Bishopsgate, we'll be offering you the chance to come along from 12pm-2pm and chat with featured artists David GatesEleanor Lakelin and Gareth Neal plus representatives from the Sarah Myerscough Gallery, who are co-hosting the installation.   

Formed through environmentally aware practices, each artwork and furniture item displayed in Craft & Contemporary Design has been created through traditional hand-crafting skills. The pieces investigate the relationship between function and form via traditional woodturning and furniture techniques alongside the application of new technologies to create unique and limited-edition elegant sculptural pieces.   

This is a free event but to ensure each of access on arrival please confirm your visit in advance with Broadgate’s Art Curator, Rosie Glenn by emailing rg@rosieglennfineart.co.uk.
