This exhibition shines a light on the talents of Jersey’s amateur artists and craftspeople, and with our ‘Make Space’ visitors will have an opportunity to create something themselves.
This exhibition displays both historical and contemporary art and craft, ranging from a Neolithic pot and 18th century samplers, to a huge Cosplay costume made out of recycled materials. Some of the exhibits are from the Jersey Heritage collections and have never been on display, and some have been lent by Islanders.
There is also a ‘Make Space’, sponsored by the Association of Jersey Charities and Channel Islands Lottery, where visitors to the exhibition can try their hand at various craft activities.
From a knitted Battle of Jersey to an Occupation costume made out of tins, Handmade Jersey explores humanity’s instinct to create. The exhibition also explores the relationship people have with materials, in particular those that are found in Jersey, such as shells and harestail, as well as things that can be found and reused
Any groups or schools interested in using the ‘Make Space’ during the exhibition, either as a one-off or regularly, can contact [email protected] to book a date and time. Please be aware that on this occasion JH will share your information with a third party for the purposes of making bookings. Your data will be deleted by the third party within 14 days of the craft session being completed.
