Craft Interventions in Domestic Spaces

A CraftNet South East and Crafts Council Seminar and Networking Event
Monday 3 November, 12.30-6pm
The Old Courtroom, Brighton

Free but must be pre-booked here

Historic houses lie somewhere between domestic and public spaces. The histories of domestic use are etched into their fabric, but they now fulfil another public role. In recent years, many interventions in these spaces have seen artists and makers using contemporary craft to tell stories about the past and the present.

This seminar brings together key curators and artists to share their experience and knowledge and debate the issues that these unique environments lend to artist interventions.
