Jerwood Makers Open 2017

A commissioning initiative offering time, curatorial advice and logistical back up for earlycareer makers to develop their ideas and further their practice. Jerwood Makers Open is a biennial opportunity encouraging ambitious and/or radical proposals from UK-based makers and collaborators within 10 years of beginning their practice. Launched in 2010, it focuses on makers and making, supporting work in a diverse range of materials and progressive practices including, but not limited to: glass, metal, wood, paper, textiles, ceramics, furniture and jewellery.

5 artists will receive £7,500 to create new works for a national touring exhibition.
