Event description
Hear from artist Katherine James about her exhibition Gendered Materiality, showing at Left Bank from 16 October to 2 November.

About this Event

Katherine's incredible exhibition explores the meanings and associations we make with materials and the ways these can be applied to create an understanding of gender.

Her practice is centred around contemporary craft and this curated show presents a varied series of chain mail lace works. The exhibition features a large sculptural piece as well as contemporary art jewellery and photographic works, which were staged here at Left Bank.

On 24 October, Katherine is hosting a free Meet the Artist talk followed by an informal round table discussion. You'll hear about her processes and inspirations, and have the opportunity to share your own thoughts on the show, if you like. This is a friendly and inclusive event that's open to everyone.

The Meet the Artist event is followed by a jewellery workshop (from 4pm), where you'll have the opportunity to learn basic chain mail technique and create an elegant bracelet. If you'd like to attend both the Meet the Artist event and the workshop, you can book here.

The exhibition, talks and workshop will all be conducted in line with COVID regulations. Materials and equipment will not be shared and participants from different households will be able to maintain a social distance at all times in our spacious venue.

You can see more of Katherine's work on her website and Instagram.

Please note, we take photos at our events for marketing purposes. If you would prefer not to appear in these, please let a member of staff know when you arrive so they can inform the photographer.
