The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

Made in the Middle is the Midland’s principal open selling exhibition of contemporary craft, which takes place every three years. It promotes the best of recent craft from makers with a regional connection and it is popular with audiences, galleries and collectors. Besides achieving an excellent level of sales, many makers gain from further commissions and exhibiting opportunities.

This is the seventh exhibition in the ongoing Made in the Middle series, originated by Craftspace. This year for the first time, East meets West as the exhibition will also feature work from makers based in or affiliated to the East Midlands, to reflect the skill and work available within the whole region.

The exhibition will launch at mac birmingham on 21st January 2012 and will tour for approximately eighteen months. Made in the Middle will launch in the East Midlands at The National Centre for Craft & Design.

Re: Bilston Craft Gallery

 

The show "Reverberations" is not open to Jewellers. The brief is quite emphatic about this.

The Radcliffe Trust supports the development of the skills, knowledge and experience that underpin the UK’s traditional cultural heritage and crafts sectors. This includes support for craft and conservation training, for practical projects and for strategic projects which demonstrate clear benefits to individuals and to the sector. However, the Trust remains committed to flexible, open and inclusive grant-giving and will consider other projects, should they fall broadly within its remit. The Radcliffe Trust wishes to promote standards of excellence through all its support.
