(01 Oct 2016 – 15 Jan 2017)
Here & Now is the first major curated exhibition of contemporary tapestry in England for over 20 years. Showcasing the breadth of international talent and most innovative approaches to the medium, the show challenges the notion that tapestry is a dying craft and marks a point in time for the artform.
Alongside British tapestry weavers, the exhibition features international artists from Australia, Norway, Latvia, Japan and the USA with over 20 artists represented overall.
Here & Now has been jointly curated by Bryony Windsor, Head of Exhibitions at NCCD and Lesley Millar, Professor of Textile Culture and Director of the International Textile Research Centre at the University for the Creative Arts, UK.
The show has been partly funded by the Daiwa Anglo-Japanese Foundation; the Great Britain Sasakawa Foundation and the Japan Foundation.
A fully illustrated catalogue is available to purchase from the exhibition.

(10 Sep – 5 Nov 16)
Winner of NCCD’s Innovation Award at Lustre 2015, Chloe Solomon presents her ‘S K I N’ collection.
Chloe Solomon is a Bristol based jeweller, designer and maker. Her current collection, ‘S K I N’ has been inspired by the human form and the textures and colours found in skin have been the catalyst for this new body of work. Delicate pastel hues and crackled white surface textures make up a translucent material that Chloe has developed; these strips of ‘skin’ are then housed in silver linear forms.

NCCD is seeking artist facilitators to propose unique and exciting curriculum based workshops that complement our forthcoming exhibition 3D Printing; The Good, The Bad and The Beautiful. Alongside those working with 3D printing, we are looking for artists who work with traditional techniques to explore alternative methods of making in response to the exhibition themes.
The exhibition runs from 28 Jan – 23 April 2017. Our education programme will be promoted to schools and colleges prior to the exhibition opening with the aim of securing bookings for workshops throughout the exhibition period. We also offer CPD evening for teachers.
We are looking for a range of workshops to cover all budgets and to suit primary and secondary pupils or teachers. Themes could include:
Light; 3D printed lights; the impact of light within a space; how light affects vision
The Creation of New Forms
Additive manufacturing – the building of layers
Animation & Design
Designing / Building futuristic machines
How 3D printing can enable visually impaired audiences to interact with exhibits in a visual arts venue
