Melbourne, Australia: Craft Victoria is excited to be part of Melbourne Design Week presenting VANGUARD, an exhibition exploring the combination of craft philosophies, methodologies and materials with new and existing technologies.

This years' Melbourne Design Week theme Design Effects delves into the wide reaching nature of design in its broadest sense.

Vanguard features the artworks of 3 Melbourne artists Alterfact (Lucile Sciallano and Ben Landau), Bin Dixon-Ward, and Michaela Pegum, who are pioneering and expanding the possibilities of exciting developments in contemporary and future craft practice.

Through their experimental and sensitive approach to making, these artists are creating new materials, expanding the possibilities of various technologies like 3D printed ceramics & jewellery and electro-plated fabric, contributing to a new interpretation of the handmade in craft.

VANGUARD is on show at Craft, Watson Lane (off Flinders Lane behind Supernormal), Melbourne from 15 March - 21 April 2018.
