A new exhibition at the Harley Gallery will show the relationship between traditional craft skills and contemporary design.

The Bodging Project took top furniture designers to work in the woods and to go back-to-basics with traditional ‘bodging’ techniques - which use green, unseasoned wood and low tech tools.

The show will include furniture made before the bodge, during the woodland workshops and work made after the bodge - show how learning these traditional methods affected the designer’s normal practice.

The exhibition features work from 10 furniture designers and is on show from 27th March to 2nd June.

Work made by The Bodging Project’s Lloyd Loom Elves will also be on show. Creeping into the Lloyd Loom factory in Spalding one weekend, a group of designers were able to play with Lloyd Loom’s iconic twisted paper materials, creating new exciting designs and trying different, unusual techniques.
