MORE than 40 artists will exhibit their work as part of a major exhibition.

Called Vessels, it takes place at Making Space, in Leigh Park, later this month.

The charity is known as the creative craft hub of Hampshire and is a combination of artist studios, space to hire and links to local designer/makers.

From October 27 to 31 it will host an exhibition of high quality craft and art made by craft artists and visual artists from across the UK. Vessels showcases a variety of work including metal work, blown glass, kiln-formed glass, ceramics, textiles, wood, paper-folding, paintings, photography, drawings and natural and found materials.

Director Lynne Dick said: ‘Vessels is our way of showcasing a collection of high quality contemporary work, to inspire and intrigue visitors.

‘When looking at craft, visitors are always interested to know more about the materials, how it was made and the ideas behind the piece.

‘We hope that Vessels will be enjoyed and stimulate curiosity.’

Most pieces are for sale. Making Space is at 2 Bishopstoke Road. Entry is free. Go to makingspace.org.
