The Black Artisans is a new photography exhibition by Jo Sealy that showcases Black makers and craftspeople, capturing traditional sectors of UK heritage crafts alongside areas of cultural heritage.
The 27 images feature disciplines that include ceramics, wood, brass instruments, stone, steel pan and calabash to name a few. There is also a series of recorded artisan talks where you can hear how each artisan selected their craft and how their experiences have shaped the type and style of their work. A selection of the featured display pieces will also be available to view throughout the exhibition.
The Black Artisans is funded by a Waltham Forest Council, Make It Happen grant, is supported by the Heritage Crafts Association and furniture maker, eco designer and broadcast presenter Jay Blades MBE.
