Acts of Making is a two week festival celebrating contemporary craft through performances, live installations and workshops. Events will be held at the Shipley Art Gallery and more unusual spaces across Gateshead. We want you to contribute, collaborate and capture your discoveries.
Witness the creation and destruction of a patterned carpet made entirely from dust; create a piece of sound art via a musical log; see a colourful procession of Vespa and Lambretta scooters parade through the streets; be part of an ongoing collection of stories and photographs which looks at relationships with jewellery.
Catherine Bertola, Keith Harrison, Owl Project, Mah Rana, Clare Twomey and Richard William Wheater all use craft skills in unexpected ways to create moments that are curious and fascinating.
Workplace Gallery is a contemporary art gallery run by artists.
Based in Gateshead UK, Workplace Gallery represents a portfolio of emerging and established artists through the gallery programme, curatorial projects and international art fairs.
