The exhibition What Do I Need to Do to Make It OK? will be on show in two very different locations in March: first at The Spring Knitting & Stitching Show at London Olympia from 2-5 March; then at The National Centre for Craft & Design, Sleaford, from 18 March until 14 May 2017.
The commissioned artworks, responding to themes of damage and repair, from Dorothy Caldwell, Saidhbhín Gibson, Celia Pym, Freddie Robins and Karina Thompson will all be on display. Alongside these will be a newly created project space to explore the way that each artist has approached her work, demonstrated through sketches, samples, photos, plans and research materials. There will also be a programme of talks and workshops across the two venues:
Tours of the exhibition by the curator at 11am and 3pm each day, at gallery TG5 at The Knitting & Stitching Show, between 2 and 5 March
A talk between the curator and artists Celia Pym & Freddie Robins in the Creative Living Theatre at 2pm Saturday 4 March
A tour of the exhibition by the curator at The National Centre for Craft & Design (NCCD) at 11am on Saturday 18 March.
A one day workshop led by Celia Pym at NCCD on Saturday 29 April
