Second Meeting of the CRITgroup

Friday, January 27th, 2012

I was particularly excited about the opportunity to meet at MadLab this month as I have attended events there before and know it as a very creatively nurturing space. It was unfortunate that not many people could make it along this evening for various (pretty good) reasons so I’m hoping that numbers pick up again soon and we can keep going. Not to start off on too much of a downer however, those of us who did attend, all left agreeing that it had been useful to meet so that’s still pretty encouraging.

Tammy Leigh returned and briefly shared some developments in her range of knitted wire jewellery which involved the inclusion of semi precious stones threaded onto the wire. Following on from her presentation of some pieces made using recycled materials at the previous meeting, we spoke more about this aspect of the work. During that discussion, we arranged for her to visit my students at Tameside College next week to talk with them about using recycled materials in their own work.

CRITgroup is a newly formed initiative, started by recent graduates from MIRIAD (Manchester Institute for Research and Innovation in Art and Design) at MMU (Manchester Metropolitan University). It aims to facilitate an opportunity for those working in a broad range of disciplines to meet, share and discuss their practical work as well as issues impacting on their practices, be those professional or otherwise. While exchange and dialogue is encouraged, those who wish to attend but do not have new work to share are also very welcome.

To date, those involved in the group have practices ranging from Sculpture, Jewellery, Photography, 3D Design, Textiles, Book Art, Ceramics, Installation, Painting, Community Projects, Illustration, Curation and Graphic Design, so it really is a very broad range of specialisms indeed. Though this is a new group, it is hoped that opportunities for collaboration and/or exhibition will develop in the future.
