The Crafts Council, operating as the British Crafts Council within an international context, will take a group of contemporary craft makers, gallery owners and educators to the design fair – Design Days Dubai – from 18-21 March 2013.
The Crafts Council supports the creative and commercial growth of individual craft makers, galleries and craft organisations from Britain. And with the support of UK Trade & Investment it will take four leading commercial galleries and a mission of high-profile advocates to Design Days Dubai.
Eighteen makers, all of whom are based in Britain, will be represented by Gallery Libby Sellers, Gallery SO, Marsden Woo Gallery and Vessel Gallery. Makers include Max Lamb, David Clarke, Simone ten Hompel, Peter Marigold Martin Smith and Yorgos Papadopoulos.
“ I feel honoured to be invited in participating in ‘Design Days Dubai’ and very thankful to the British Crafts Council for providing a platform to show the excellence of British craft, art and design to a Middle east audience.”
