This exhibition is the culmination of a 12-month collaboration project between eight members of Ornamentum, following a theme of pattern and repeat. Eight makers have been working in pairs to create completely new work for this show. Makers are also exhibiting solo work alongside their collaborations.
Pairings were drawn at random in December 2013 and the pairs have been working together throughout 2014. Each pair has taken a different approach to collaboration, some sharing techniques, some swapping work, some sharing ideas and inspirations.
Working in collaboration allows supportive creative development, helps makers learn new techniques, try new ideas and experiment in a supportive environment.
