We Gather features five female artists of Black and Asian heritage. Whilst their chosen materials and disciplines vary, their work shares a commitment to craft, its cultural value

Crafts Council - We Gather

Following the announcement of Make! Craft! Live! a season of events that will mark the Crafts Council's 50th anniversary and celebrate the value of craft to empower, enrich and connect our society, Crafts Council are pleased to present a new exhibition at the Crafts Council Gallery.

Whilst their chosen materials and disciplines vary, their work shares a commitment to craft and its cultural value.

Birmingham-based artist Shaheen Ahmed’s work uses maps to reflect narratives of statelessness and disparagement.

East Sussex-based artist Lorna Hamilton-Brown, known for her subversive textile works, has created a knitted magazine cover, We Mek Magazine full of symbolism.

British-Sudanese textile artist Omeima Mudawi-Rowlings’s work explores themes of identity, communication, heritage, and womanhood and she will present a new light installation.

Ghanaian-born silversmith Francisca Onumah has created three emotive and figurative vessels that reflect family photographs and historical images of Ghanaian people in everyday life.

London-based artist Onome Otite has created a new textile work inspired by the support network between women.

We Gather grew out of Craft Expertise, the AHRC-funded UKRI/RCUK Innovation Fellowship led by Dr Karen Patel of Birmingham City University, in collaboration with Crafts Council, exploring racial inequality in craft.
