About this event

Attend online or in-person from 6.30-8pm on 10 May 2022.

To mark the launch of the May/June issue of Crafts magazine and the opening of the Crafts Council’s new exhibition Gaining Ground, the Crafts Council Gallery is hosting a discussion about how traditional craft practices can help repair our ecosystems and societies.

Hear from two exhibitors from the show: basketmaker Annemarie O’Sullivan, who grows 20 varieties of willow near her East Sussex studio, and ceramic artist Jay Mistry, who has been collaborating with potters in Guyana to preserve Indigenous identity through clay. They will be joined by Daniel Olatunji, founder of the slow fashion menswear label Monad London, which works with artisans using traditional craft techniques across the globe. The talk will be chaired by Crafts magazine’s Debika Ray.

The in-person event will take place at the Crafts Council Gallery, 44A Pentonville Road, London, N1 9BY.

Tickets cost £10 to attend in person or £8.50 to watch online.
