Woman’s Hour Craft Prize 30 Mar 2019 – 27 May
Gallery One

This touring exhibition showcases work by the twelve finalists of the inaugural Woman’s Hour Craft Prize. With work as varied as handwoven willow structures, futuristic glass figures and carefully darned clothing to bespoke bicycles and unfired clay installations, the finalists explore issues including consumer culture, identity and heritage.

The most comprehensive of its kind, the prize was established to find and celebrate the most innovative and exciting craft practitioner or designer-maker resident in the UK today. It rewards originality and excellence in concept, design and process, recognising makers who have demonstrably contributed to craft practice in the last five years.

The finalists were Laura Ellen Bacon, Alison Britton, Neil Brownsword, Lin Cheung, Phoebe Cummings, Caren Hartley, Peter Marigold, Celia Pym, Romilly Saumarez Smith, Andrea Walsh, Emma Woffenden and Laura Youngson Coll. Ceramicist Phoebe Cummings was named the winner on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour broadcast live from the V&A on 8 November 2017.

The Woman’s Hour Craft Prize is a collaboration between the Crafts Council, the V&A and BBC Radio 4. Exhibition tour organised by the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.
