The Craft & Design Collective invites you to apply to exhibit your work as part of MADE 2017, our Annual Exhibition at Space CRAFT in March each year.MADE is the Craft & Design Collective’s highest profile exhibition of the year. The aim of the exhibition is to provide a focal point in the calendar to showcase work of the highest quality in the land. We are looking for work that is Marvellous, Amazing, Delightful and Exceptional. The exhibition is intended to both challenge and inform the public perception of Craft, Applied Art and Design.
MADE provides a fantastic exhibition opportunity as in previous years work exhibited has been purchased for both the Arts Council of Northern Ireland’s Collection and National Museums Northern Ireland’s Collection.
In addition visitors to the exhibition will be asked to vote for their favourite piece and the Craft & Design Collective will make an award of £250 to the winning Artist/Designer/Maker.
