An exhibition exploring the intimate relationship between drawing and making. Drawing is often considered by makers to be at the heart of their creative expression, although it is something which the public rarely sees. Out of Sight: Drawing in the Lives of Makers will foreground this process, showing drawings, sketches, doodles and visual notes next to finished objects. Out of Sight contains insights into the creative process and illuminates the centrality of drawing as a means of turning ideas and visions into reality.
Curated by ceramicist Kyra Cane, and based on her book Making and Drawing , the exhibition will include work from all of the craft disciplines represented by CAA – ceramics, glass, metalwork, jewellery, textiles and furniture. Makers' concepts and inspirations (sketchbooks, drawings, CAD files) as well as prototypes and finished work will illustrate some of the many different routes craftspeople take to reach the production of a complete object.
