Join us for a day of free activities related to traditional crafts.

11.30 & 13.30 Handle craft objects from around the world and watch a screening of rare archival footage, exploring crafts from India and Nigeria.

14.30 Join a curator-led tour of cases that have recently been redisplayed as part of the VERVE: Need Make Use project. These cases feature objects related to working with wood - masks, figurative sculpture and headrests - and leather.

No need to book but come along early to join the tour, as space is limited. This event is part of 'CRAFT: Counterpoints in Contemporary Making', an exhibition exploring the creation of contemporary art using traditional craft techniques, curated by the O3 Gallery. The exhibition runs at their site in Oxford Castle Quarter until 31 May.
