An exhibition celebrating 20 years of a personality-packed jewellery brand.
A Tatty Devine and Crafts Council exhibition funded by Arts Council England
Join us for our summer exhibition as we celebrate 20 years of Tatty Devine.
Tatty Devine’s founders Rosie Wolfenden and Harriet Vine set up a stall in Spitalfields Market in East London in the mid 1990’s. Not long after, they invested in their first laser cutting machine, going on to create a personality-packed jewellery brand much loved and still culturally relevant 20 years on.
Their DIY, unknowingly anarchic approach resonated with an industry and public who were hungry for something different from the commercialised, mass produced products on offer. Turning throwaway disposable objects like scraps of leather and guitar plectrums into jewellery not only landed the brand in Vogue magazine but also in the hearts of loyal fans all over the world.
Their work and collaborations have become markers of the time they were made in. Tatty Devine has always worked closely with musicians, artists, designers and brands from Gilbert and George to Belle and Sebastian – all people they feel a connection to. Creativity, self-expression and hand-making are at the heart of everything they do.
This exhibition is the first retrospective of Tatty Devine and will explore entrepreneurship, innovative British making and the power of creativity.
At the New Brewery Arts gallery, Opens 26th of June till 5th of September, Monday-Saturday 9:00AM-5:00PM.
