Back to School for Grown-ups
Until 5 November 2017
Back to School for Grown Ups is a selling exhibition of highest calibre handmade leather goods, books and pens. A celebration of a new academic year for design conscious adults.
MacGregor & Michael, leatherware designers, Ursula Jeakins, book binder and guest exhibitor Jake Lazzari, pen maker, are showing their exceptional craft in this school themed project. We have set up a workshop / bindery in the shop window so that MacGregor & Michael and Ursula Jeakins can demonstrate their practice. Ursula will also be running daily workshops at Chapel Arts, just down the street, from the 10 - 15 October.
Jake Lazzari is a designer maker who trained at the Hereford College of Arts. He produces intricate work which reflects his lifelong interest in architecture, science fiction, design and industrial mechanics. His one off contemporary pens are inspired by the lavish Italian cycle components that he encountered while working in the bicycle industry. All Jake's pens are handmade in Ebonite, which is a traditional material for pens, developed originally to replace expensive ebony wood and as an alternative to metal pens. All the pens use Bock German nibs which are regarded as some of the finest on the market.
