This month we’re highlighting contemporary craft such as ceramics, glass, metal, wood, textiles and jewellery design.
The exhibition will feature work from invited creatives and selected work from an open call. It will include work from established makers, as well as new talent, based in Leicestershire, the UK and internationally, including work by Unlocked Craft Collective 2021 (second year DMU BA Design Craft students), and members of Design Nation Leicestershire Cluster Hub.
Exhibitions and events will be online via social media @lcbdepot and in the real world across our exhibition spaces. If visiting in real life please respect current Covid guidelines.
