Exhibition and Book by Kate Lynch

In this latest journey Somerset-artist Kate Lynch from High Ham, near Langport is meeting people practising old crafts and trades in Somerset. The exhibition of this new collection, ‘CRAFT – Somerset Portraits and Voices’, will be displayed at the Museum, and it will be accompanied by the launch of a new book.

There are 30 traditional craftspeople featured in the project. There is the last remaining sievewright in the country, a handmade paper mill powered by a waterwheel on Exmoor, and one of the last companies in the world still weaving horsehair in Castle Cary. Also rare are the makers of bell ropes, bee skeps, brushes and horse harness, and there are many more familiar crafts featured as well including blacksmiths and farriers, potters. stone carvers, basketmakers, thatchers and hedgelayers.
