Freddie Robins is one of the selectors invited to chose works from the Crafts Council Collection to create a ‘visual answer’ to the question – What does craft look like and mean to you? Alongside this selection curator Dr. Christine Checinska was asked to consider what was missing. Her selection of works by contemporary makers plays tribute to the founding ethos of the collection – to document innovative practice by emerging makers.
The final result is Maker’s Eye: Stories of Craft, an exhibition which features over 150 craft objects embodying multiple viewpoints on craft and its meaning.
As well as being a selector Freddie Robins has also been selected. She has two works from the Crafts Council Collection exhibited in Maker’s Eye – Hand of Good, Hand of God (1997) and Crafts Kills (2002).
Maker’s Eye: Stories of Craft runs from 7 July – 9 October 2021.
