Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen presents an exhibition bringing together the most beautiful examples of craftsmanship, past and present. The museum will display more than 500 objects, ranging from silver goblets, exquisite lace and simple earthenware pots to refined glasswork, woven baskets and designer furniture. Hand Made is not only a celebration of craft and craftsmanship, it also questions various assumptions and clichés surrounding crafts. As part of the exhibition, the museum will provide artists, designers and specialist craftspeople with a podium to demonstrate their skills.
Hand Made’ will be accompanied by an extensive and varied programme of films and documentaries about crafts. More info at the museum's official website.
