Going Green

7th September 2007 at 01:00

Used postage stamps, discarded cutlery and broken china all feature in an exhibition of new designer craftwork in the gallery at Tweeddale Museum, Peebles. Green showcases the work of the 11 members of DesignEd, a professional designersmakers group based in Edinburgh, such as Anna King (below). The theme of the exhibition is recycling but the aim is to show not only what can be produced using old and discarded materials, but how designers from different disciplines can help each other by sharing ideas and skills.

The exhibition features dozens of examples of "green" jewellery, ceramics, textiles, fashion, glass, metalwork, basketry, lighting and furniture, and runs until October 6. High schools in the Peebles area will take part in an arts project inspired by the show.
