Stellar

  • 1 October 2018 — 2 February 2019 *on now

Inspired by the wonder and mystery of stars and space, this display is unashamedly focussed on all things, bright, twinkly and sparkly. It features jewellery in precious metals, ceramics with lustrous glazes, and textiles in plush fabrics.

Every piece is hand-made by a designer-maker and there are a range of prices.

With Christmas approaching, this provides an excellent opportunity to purchase more unusual and original gifts. So why not indulge yourself or a loved one with a piece of beautiful craft that is out of this world?

Suitable for

  • Any age
