The results are in: following a series of intensive residencies and workshops on Vietnamese crafting traditions, involving local artisans and industry professionals, participants of the Craft and Design Challenge 2017 are now ready to present the projects they have since been working on.
Realised as part of the British Council’s Crafting Futures global initiative, the exhibited works combine age-old knowledge with contemporary designs and span a wide range of disciplines and products. Together, they serve as suggestions towards innovative and sustainable ways of preserving and developing Vietnam’s craft sector.
Curated by Claire Driscoll (Work Room Four), the showcase features works from 20 young designers and entrepreneurs:
Bùi Hạnh Nguyên (Touched) | Bùi Minh Thảo (Mottaina) | Bùi Thị Thanh Lan (Mía) | Chu Kim Đức (Think Playgrounds) | Đỗ Bá Nam | Đỗ Thị Cúc (Cúc Handmade Design) | Đỗ Thị Diệu Trâm (Hue Craft Home)| Lưu Tuấn Hiệp | Nguyễn Hoàng Huy (Việt Collection) | Nguyễn Phương Trinh| Nguyễn Song Thanh Trâm | Nguyễn Thị Bích Liễu (Wings) | Nguyễn Thị Hà Thu (Hoa Mộc)| Nguyễn Thị Thu Hà (Giữ Shop) | Phạm Ngọc Anh | Sầm Thị Tình | Trần Thị Yến (Tre Shop)| Uông Lan Nhi | Vì Thị Thu Trang (Indie Hand) | Vũ Phạm Trường Minh
