What is Craft? Decoration

Autumn / Winter 2015 until 13 March 2016

Ruthin Craft Centre is delighted to launch our next season’s theme Decoration.

We are all about decoration this season, whether it is wallpaper designs, Christmas decorations, patterns or decorative animals – we’ve got it covered!

Come and embellish our studio walls! Our resource space will feature a new hands-on activity designed by artist Eleri Jones. You’ll have the opportunity to get stuck in and ‘decorate’ the space with your own designs, drawings, collage and illustrations. Inspired by W is for Wallpaper in Gallery 1.

Eleri Jones is an artist based in north Wales whose work is very much inspired by her rural surroundings – her family, her upbringing on the farm. Eleri will also be working with a number of Denbighshire primary schools this autumn as part of the continuing What is Craft? project.

Professional ‘Makers’: Two new makers join our ‘Makers Collection’ area – ceramicist Lowri Davies and textile designer Ptolemy Mann. Come and touch their work… Come and see how they use decoration… Explore and discover the secrets behind the making of their extraordinary work.
