In partnership with the University of Lincoln, The National Centre for Craft & Design presents a thought provoking exhibition exploring 3D printing technology. The Good, The Bad and The Beautiful celebrates innovation, poses ethical questions and considers the future of the manufacturing process.
Works on display explore the innovative, political, social and environmental aspects of 3D printing. The show highlights that whilst the process is opening up new creative possibilities for makers, the technology also raises other complex questions – the role of designer and maker; authorship; our relationships with objects, customisation and mass production; conservation or changing history; environmental or a way of democratising medicine?
The Good, The Bad and The Beautiful is an immersive experience that includes light, sound and touch to create new levels of accessibility for audiences with different needs. The exhibition is part of an ongoing research study by the University of Lincoln into accessibility for visually impaired audiences.
This exhibition has been jointly funded by NCCD, University of Lincoln, DRILL Big Lottery and Arts Council England.

This season we present two award winners from One Year On at New Designers 2016. In partnership with our sister organisation Design-Nation the winners are given one year’s free membership to Design-Nation and a solo exhibition opportunity at NCCD.
Winner of Week One Rachel Howarth utilises digital print to combine tonal blends and patterns to create complex surface designs. Rachel is inspired by modernist architecture and in particular the colours that are reflected on glass structures in shifting light.
Our second winner Hannah Tounsend is a ceramicist and printmaker based in Chichester. Since winning the award in July Hannah has been growing her business and raising her profile as a designer, maker and artist.
‘Exhibiting at New Designers was a very valuable experience’ explains Hannah. ‘It resulted in sales and a new range of opportunities. Winning the One Year On award greatly raised my profile and gave me the opportunity to work towards the challenge of creating this solo show’.
