Makers Dozen in Conversation: Craft and Design Centre 15 Aug

On Thursday 11 September the six core members of Makers Dozen will be hosing a In Conversation event about the trials and triumphs of their collaborations for the current exhibition on at the Manchester Craft and Design Centre (MCDC)

MCDC invited the Dozen to takeover their Summer exhibitions and events programme, and they responded to this brief by engaging with new ways of thinking through working collaboratively. They were encouraged to be exploratory, playful, experimental, and risk-taking, and the results vary from a mini recreation of the exhibition spaces to a prototype for the world’s most expensive candle.

This event will be informal, encouraging questions from you as the audience and within the Dozen themselves. The evening will also be a chance for a sneaky peak at the exhibition whilst the building is closed to the public, where you can talk directly to the makers themselves. The six core members are:

Eleanor Simms
Joseph Hartley
Vinny Ratcliff
Rory Thompson
Jessica Swallow
and Laura Negus
