making space

With Hampshire Open Studios coming up in August, Making Space is once again making its own exhibition for the occasion.

Because of the uncertainty created by the corona virus pandemic, the team at Making Space will be keeping things digital to a large extent. But there will still be ways to enjoy the work of the Havant craft organisation’s talented makers.

This year, Making Space will be presenting two exhibitions; a physical window display in the Making Space building itself, showcasing the physical art pieces provided by the artists in a way that is accessible from outside the building itself, and a digital gallery, filled with all sorts of artworks from their associate makers and tenants. Video interviews with several artists talking about their work will also be available for the public from August 21st until the 30th.

Faye Hughes - Making Space’s Director, said: ‘Renewal is the theme of our exhibition this year - after everything had been put on hold last year, we are just starting to see things begin to return to normal again. Many of us are coming out of this period of our lives with a new skill or two, and all with a new perspective. To reflect this, our exhibition features projects, mostly started before the pandemic, that have been renewed, given new life and new meaning after the major lockdowns.’

Young makers will also have the chance to win a free craft kit at the end of it all. Look out for the craft material cards on display in local shops around Greywell Square and Park Parade. Find these cards for a chance to win.
