Portraits from the North East: the Crafts People

11 April 2017

SIG: Documentary

Over the past eighteen months a group of photographers who make up the Portraits Collective have been travelling around the North East recording the region's craftspeople.From jewellers to glass-blowers, from corn-dolly weavers to those retired shipyard workers who keep the North East’s maritime heritage alive and from the makers of musical instruments to wood-carvers, this exhibition honours the dedication of our talented craftspeople and celebrates their skills and creativity. 

Come and see this unique collection of images in the Pottery Gallery of Sunderland Museum & Winter Gardens from 1 April – 2 May 2017.
