• Selected 2015: Jode Pankhurst #TakerMaker meets Ben the Apprentice Weaver (Online Event)

Selected 2015 maker, Jode Pankhurst and Dovecot Apprentice Weaver Ben Hymers will meet and discuss their studio practice and making. Focusing on the collection on view in the exhibition, Jode will describe to Ben how the pieces were made.
