Families can get back to nature at RHS Garden Harlow Carr in Harrogate this May half term with a packed programme of activities to celebrate 100 years of Cub Scouting. Youngsters can learn about the great outdoors, find out what makes trees so important and find some unusual examples on a daily trail through the garden’s woodland.
Yorkshire-based Nicola Rawlings constructs an arrangement of elements which when joined create an impermanent pattern linked to their counterpart forming a network of systems. Many of the forms are constructed using assorted gauges of silver wire representing the use of line expressed within contemporary art. As with many abstract forms black areas dominate, to represent this she incorporates elements of ceramic stoneware, a media she has previously explored for its tactile surface and intense appearance. Used alongside rubber and vibrant elastics she creates bold contemporary statement pieces designed for the everyday and the extraordinary.
I AM HERE features almost 100 pieces of jewellery by European makers from over five decades, starting with pieces from the most radical era of modern jewellery making, the New Jewellery Movement in the 1970’s. Makers featured include Susanna Heron, a major presence in the New Jewellery Movement who championed the importance of design over materials and David Watkins, who experimented with new material technology approaches to jewellery.
