Join us for the special opening of Woman's Hour Craft Prize nominee Laura Ellen Bacon's new exhibition created especially for NCCD, 'Rooted in Instinct'.

This Autumn, The National Centre for Craft & Design is proud to present Rooted in Instinct – a new collection of work developed especially for NCCD by Woman’s Hour Craft Prize nominee and British Sculptor, Laura Ellen Bacon.

Rooted in Instinct is a unique exhibition demonstrating an evolution of the intuitive making process that has dominated Bacon’s practice to date. It is a pivotal moment in the artist’s career featuring unexpected and familiar forms in willow and new explorations in thatch, further developing the possibilities of traditional hand weaving and knotting techniques. In response to NCCD’s history as an old seed warehouse, new abstract sculptures create height density and detail, the forms are all at once majestic, immersive and ‘protective’ with a unique sense of connectivity to the heritage crafts and architecture of the Lincolnshire landscape.
