Group Exhibition

Creu // Make is an exhibition that explores contemporary craft products made by Makers from all corners of Wales, using traditional rural crafts including; pottery, weaving, chair making, textile art, wood work and more. Wales has a strong tradition of craft skills, which draws on our history as a place that makes stuff. This exhibition explores some of the incredible skills being practiced around Wales by people who are keeping this tradition alive

We are proud to be working with Jwrnal to support local, creative and independent businesses across Wales. During the exhibition there will be opportunities to meet the makers, and try your hand at some of the processes they use. This might be the starting point for developing your own creative career.

Share your own images from and inspired by the exhibition using the hashtag #MakeWales #CreuDavies and don’t forget to tag @jwrnal_wales and @orieldavies

Jwrnal ('journal') is a platform for documenting and promoting makers and creatives in Wales. Jwrnal launched at The Good Life Experience festival in 2017 and has since gone on to develop online and physical platforms for makers and creatives across Wales

‘Jwrnal Selects // y Casgliad Jwrnal’ features a personal selection of additional objects by artists, makers and artisans in our Gallery Shop.
