14 June 2024

A new exhibition shall be arriving at The Crypt on Tuesday 25 June from the Norfolk Contemporary Craft Society. This exhibition will feature gorgeous, striking work covering basketry, book binding, ceramics, jewellery, textiles , mixed media, weaving and wood.

Formed in 1972, the NCCS set out to encourage and promote the work of artists and craftspeople in East Anglia, and to collect works in ceramics, handmade glass and jewellery.

The NCCS’s mission now is to promote the work of the skilled designer makers in Norfolk and to increase the public awareness of contemporary craft within Norfolk and beyond. It does this through staging exhibitions, holding talks, and arranging events that are open to all members.

The Society aims to set, and reflect, high standards in craft works, to explore outlets for selling and opportunities for members to meet socially, as well as to raise public awareness of good design and high quality in small scale production.

Over 30 current members work in a variety of disciplines, from traditional to cutting edge, encompassing ceramics, book binding, furniture, glass, jewellery, letter-carving and sculpture, paperworks, textiles and woodturning, creating beautiful work, which is represented in various national and international collections.

Tuesday 25 June – Saturday 6 July.

The exhibition is open daily from 10.00 – 4.30. (Closed on Sundays)

There will be a private viewing on Thursday 27 June 18:00-19:30.
