‘Ten’ exhibition at Unit Twelve Gallery 9th May- 5th September

The exhibition was initially planned as a ten year anniversary of Unit Twelve Gallery. The gallery can't open its doors for the visitors at this difficult time and are therefore launching their online show to start the exhibition.

To celebrate the gallery being 10 years old, 10 of artists and makers were picked by 10 leading professionals, who curate, organise, plan and shape the world of contemporary craft...

I was selected by Katie Honnor, Director of madebyhandonline. Thank you Katie!

The exhibition will go live online from 2pm on Saturday 9th May on Unit Twelve Gallery's social media - Facebook pageTwitter and Instagram.

More information is available HERE.
