Cut, Braid, Knit, Fold, a Special Showcase at Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery



BRAID – Inspired by 19th Century braiding techniques, Anke Hennig works in fine threads of coloured nylon and silk to create curvaceous three-dimensional forms from wound flat braids.
CUT – Crisp, precise rings that create undulating fan-like shapes on the hand.
It is the British coastline that inspires Anthony Roussel’s laser cut birch wood jewellery.
FOLD – Looking like extravagant Elizabethan ruffled cuffs, Rachel Darbourne’s folded bracelets and necklaces are a feat of recycling: carefully folded from polythene bags, they are colourful and fun to wear.
KNIT – The prize for eccentric making technique goes to Blanka Sperkova, who finger-knits wire into both free sculptures and jewellery, creating delicate, witty, multi-dimensional pieces.

If you visit Kath Libbert Jewellery Gallery you can see a special showcase: Cut, Braid, Knit, Fold. The showcase features Anthony RousselCut, Anke Hennig – Braid, Blanka SperkováKnit, and Rachel Darbourne – Fold.  The showcase runs until 1st July.
