Some Like it Hot

Some Like it Hot poster

24 Nov - 15 Dec 2017

For the first time, staff from across the Jewellery and Textiles Programme are showcasing their research and practice together in exhibition. 'Some Like It Hot' presents new projects through the perspective of temperatures required to fabricate materials: some designers need to operate at 1000 °C, while others work below zero.  

Making in design and craft encompasses transformative processes which often need to be executed at specific temperatures. The transition from Stone Age to Iron Age evidences how, by expanding our mastery of heat processes, craft makers colonised new ways of making leading across millennia to the cutting-edge techniques of today's contemporary practice.

Opening times:

Tuesday to Friday: 11am - 6pm
Saturday: 12 noon - 5pm

On Thursday 30 November and Tuesday 5 December join us at 1pm in the gallery for a free exhibitor-led tour.
