This exhibition highlights North Devon Endangered and Heritage skills through the production of exciting new works. The pieces of work have been created by two artists and one craftsman through combining a learned endangered skill with their current practice.

Painter, Hester Berry has been working with Ceramicist Sandy Brown on tile making.

Furniture maker, Edward Wild has been taught Gilding by Artist Danni Bradford.

Artist, Edward Crumpton has been taught Coppersmithing by Michael Johnson from Newlyn Copperworks.

All the artists have all taken inspiration from the museums collection from the copper work featured in Shapland and Petter furniture, tiles and pottery from Brannam Pottery and gilding which features on some hidden objects in the collection. These objects  will be shown alongside the new works, as well as Photography and a Film documenting the project.

This Arts Council funded project is being run by the Artist, Edward Crumpton and Jessica Pearson, Founder of The Maker Series, to inspire the evolution of Endangered skills so that they have a better chance of survival in our modern world.

If you would like to find out more about the project and endangered skills why not join a panel discussion on Thursday 13th October.
