This exhibition features a select group of jewellery and/or object makers who are, or in the process of, becoming masters of a particular technique. Each uses a different technique and material, and has spent many hours crafting the pieces on display.

This exhibition aims to make explicit the labour and skill that has gone into creating the pieces. It considers time intensive art practices and how the outcome develops through this process.

Each of the makers has been interviewed regarding the technique and material that they use. Their responses provide insight into the maker’s process, choices, frustrations and successes.
