urban FIELD is a collaborative project between three UK crafts organisations and some of Britain's finest makers. "The key outcome of this collaboration is an exhibition exploring the rural urban theme, asking whether it’s a divide or a bridge for today’s craft makers."
Dail Behennah is one of the exhibitors and will be giving 2 talks at Contemporary Applied Arts in Percy Street on 23 May. 1.30 - 2.30 pm and 6 - 7pm. Admission is free but booking required as space is limited. I got to know Dail through exhibiting her work back in England and am lucky to own the piece pictured above. Dail has her own unique voice. She makes sublimely beautiful objects which involve meticulous planning and execution but somehow never stray into sterility. It should be an interesting talk if you are in London.
NB - Dail notified me to say that there is a mistake on the urbanFIELD website - her talks are on the 23rd May not April as stated.
