Oxford Preservation Trust and The University of Oxford welcome you to a weekend when we celebrate Oxford and all that makes it special – its places, spaces and most of all its communities. O3 Gallery will host a 'Creation Station' located at the top entrance to the gallery for one weekend only. We invite our visitors to collect their chalk from the gallery and add their real, historical and fictional happenings in Oxford to our chalkboard map of the city.

Crafty Networking Evening

.

Crafty Networking is a collaborative programme between O3 Gallery, the VERVE project at the Pitt Rivers and Darn It & Stitch. Crafty Networking is an Initiative to support craft-workers, designers and artists to make positive connections with like-minded people. We endeavor to put makers, sellers, bloggers, buyers and enthusiasts in touch to discuss their work, share skills and interests, meet people who may be able to help with the commercial success of their work, and connect them with the rich and inspirational collections at the Pitt Rivers. Crafty networking events take places four times a year.

Next Event:

Thursday 11 December 18.00 -19.30
Pitt Rivers Museum
Free  


Join O3 Gallery, The Pitt Rivers Museum and Darn It & Stitch at the Pitt Rivers Museum for a relaxed event that will bring together individuals with a vested interest in the development of local and national craft. From buyers for shops and galleries, craft workers and artisans, to design teachers and the crafty curious, we are dedicated to building a network for all those involved and interested in craft and design.

There will be a short talk then visitors will then be invited to connect with fellow guests over a glass of wine.

Display tables will be made available but due to conservation issues, we ask that you don't bring silk, natural wool, untreated organic material or wet products – if in doubt, drop Jozie (jozie.kettle@prm.ox.ac.uk) an email. Cash bar.

O3 Gallery runs Crafty Networking in partnership with The Pitt Rivers Museum and Darn It & Stitch.

Felicity Ford
Knitter and artist Felicity Ford will discuss her practice and the mediums that inform her work. Her particular ‘obsession’ with combing wool and sounds began, in her own words, ‘in 2007 when I knitted a sound system and played the sounds of making my dinner through it…From the moment I cast off, pressed play, and pushed a soft speaker playing sizzling onions to my ears, I knew I was on to something!’
 
Felicity is interested in everyday things, women’s history and labour, and the home as a specific site of meaning, exploring these obsessions through recording, podcasting, hand-knitting, radio-making, dyeing, spinning, and writing. Cash bar and entry via the South Door, Robinson Close, off South Parks Road: Click here for Map
