Manchester Jewellers Network celebrates 150 years of Alice
Curiouser and curiouser…
Did you fall in love with the fantasy world that Lewis Carroll created for his young muse Alice? We’re giving all you grown-up children the chance to let your imaginations run riot all over again in the company of the March Hare, the Cheshire Cat, the Queen of Hearts, and everyone’s favourite pipe-smoking caterpillar.
The magical story of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland has fired the imagination of children – and adults – for a century and a half. 2015 marks the 150th anniversary of its original publication and to celebrate, we’ve invited Manchester Jewellers Network (MJN) to take over our exhibition space this winter.
Exploring Wonderland is a showcase of work inspired by the imagination of Lewis Carroll and will feature 28 makers, including jewellers, glassmakers, printmakers, paper artists, furniture makers, ceramicists and more.
Alice in Wonderland remains as enchanting as ever and Exploring Wonderland will enchant you all over again.
The exhibition continues until 14th February 2016.
Established in 2002, MJN has around 20 members. The network champions handmade work, exhibits internationally, and promotes exciting and innovative contemporary jewellery made from a broad range of materials. www.manchesterjewellersnetwork.org
