Useful/Beautiful: Why Craft Matters

    Ticket information

  • Free for members.

Saturday 23 March – Sunday 22 September 2019
11am – 3.30pm

We are surrounded by the word ‘craft’.
What is it and why does it matter to us today?

Launching the very first Harewood Biennial, the exhibition aims to challenge preconceptions about the role craft can play in culture, identity and society.

Across the stunning rooms of Harewood’s majestic country home, you’ll discover 26 of the finest individuals, workshops and brands that practice craft. From jeans to pocket knives, to reclaimed furniture to glass sculptures, every exhibitor has a story to tell.

The only exhibition of its kind, it includes commissions by Anthony Burrill, Kate Holland, Max Lamb, Timorous Beasties, plus a commissioned installation from Faye Toogood.

There are opportunities to take part too across special event weekends and workshops, plus get close up at twilight tours and more.
