"This quality makers fair will be held in the Lord Street Mission where you will find unique gifts for your friends and family, or special treats for yourself from our vast sample of the finest art being made in Kirklees and beyond. Twice as many artists will be sharing their wonderful work with the festival revellers this year filling the bright mission hall with colour and creativity, chic, quirky, beautiful and striking imagery in many forms. From photographs, drawings, paintings, prints, ceramics and carvings there is something to appeal to all tastes and all pockets."

Exhibition launch on 16 November 2013
3 - 5pmRefreshments provided
Eleven jewellers including myself have interpreted eleven articles from the (UDHR) to create unusual, individual and often personal jewellery pieces.  Fundamental themes and issues addressed include freedom of choice, hunger, industrial disease, access to medicine and the female right to vote. The jewellery is supported by Jonathan Keenan’s photography exhibition, showing shots of the work worn on the body. Taking a journalistic stance the photographs show the pieces in context, challenging and prompting the viewers response around common human rights issues.
Jewellers: Caroline Royal, Stefanie Buckley, Samantha Mills, Rowena Golton, Anne Hawley, Ewa Barker, Abby Filer, Martin Rees, Melissa Hansom, Tara Kirkpatrick, Gemma Scully.
Please tell us your thoughts on the pieces and exhibition, we would love to hear your views.
