Michelle was invited by Great Northern Events to organise and curate ‘Ornament’ at the Great Northern Contemporary Craft Fair in 2016. Ornament is a stand alone exhibition of museum quality, collectible contemporary craft within one of the North West’s largest retail craft fairs.
Michelle selected seven eminent UK makers covering the disciplines of ceramics, glass, textiles, furniture and jewellery. Each of the selected makers’ work is held in significant museum collections in the North of the UK. In addition to selecting the makers, Michelle’s role was to design the space to showcase each of the makers’ work, and create a visually appealing exhibition.
