Portraits from the North East: the Crafts People

Saturday, April 1, 2017 to Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Over the past eighteen months the 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.
