Exhibition to showcase work by five jewellery designers.
The Makers at the Mill exhibition, inspired by the historical House Mill in Bromley-by-Bow, is set to run from July 22 to September 9, featuring work by several UK-based designers.
The exhibition spans the duration of the London 2012 Games and is situated close to the Olympic Park.
All participant makers and artists in Makers at the Mill will be exhibiting new pieces inspired by the House Mill, its history or environment alongside selections from their collections. All works will be for sale.
Exhibitors will include five jewellery designer-makers: Rosemary Lucas, with her sculptural forms in bangles, pendants and earrings and asymmetric necklaces combining gemstones with frosted or darkened silver; Carol Zilla whose ethically produced designs are influenced by the flowing lines and curves of animal and bird silhouettes and inspired by the rich and varied wildlife of the city; Kareece Peters who has a playful approach to jewellery making; Elsa Tierney a jeweller and sculptor influenced by bauhaus and modernist design and Ilana Levine also a jeweller and sculptor whose work is characterised by melting organic elements.
It includes five Ebb&Flow Thursday evening events which will raise money for the River Lea Tidal Mill Trust.
The exhibition will also showcase hand-crafted pieces including ceramics, furniture, installation, photography, printmaking, painting and textiles.
