Finally our immersive experience Nature Lab that previewed at Design Miami/ Basel in June will also be displayed. Nature Lab tells the story of nature transformed by six British craft talents and is presented by Crafts Council and The New Craftsmen. Each maker has developed radical new techniques to transform such everyday substances as wood, sand, salt, clay, flowers and ice into objects of wonder. The six makers in Nature Lab are Eleanor Lakelin: Emily Gardiner: Jochen Holz: Joseph Harrington: Marcin Rusak: and Marlène Huissoud.
