JÓL / Saturday 30th November 2019 – Saturday 18th January 2020

JÓL is the old Norse celebration of the Winter Solstice and the returning of the light after the short days and long nights of winter. This exhibition will feature works in wood, metal, textiles, ceramics and glass. It will concentrate on beautifully hand crafted objects to either use or give as gifts over the festive period with an emphasis on cosy nights by the fire, a sense of peace and tranquility as a welcome antidote to the frenetic, throw away culture of the modern Christmas celebration.

Exhibitors include Liadain Aiken, Malin Applegren Bailey, Benefield Spencer Glass, Yasha Butler, Alex de Vol, Mari Ishikawa, Anna Silverton, Mourne Textiles, Deborah Tseng, Hannah Uprichard and more to be confirmed shortly.

Private View: Friday 29th November 5.30pm – 7.30pm
