Crafting the Cathedral - BA (Hons) Contemporary Design Crafts & BA (Hons) Jewellery Design

The exhibition entitled ‘Crafting the Cathedral’ invites HCA students to create work in response to the objects and furnishings of the cathedral. After receiving a guided tour, which focused on the art and history of the building, students set to work on designs in their chosen discipline.

The resulting exhibition showcases a range of pieces, each exploring the students’ personal interpretation of the cathedral fabric in their own way; from delicate metal work to ceramics and automata.

“The sacred space of Hereford Cathedral has been a source of creative inspiration for centuries. Carrying on this tradition, it has been wonderful to welcome the students from HCA for their Crafting the Cathedral exhibition. They were invited to produce a piece of work in response to anything in the cathedral, and the results are amazingly diverse and impress with their originality, imagination, energy, thoughtfulness and skill.”

Dr. Rosemary Firman (Cathedral Librarian)

The exhibition opens to the public from Saturday 14 December and runs until January 5 2020. 

Please note that The Crypt can only be accessed via steps.
