Selected artists

We’re excited to announce the selected artists for this year’s In:Site 2018 festival!

This year, artists will be weaving, printing, casting pewter, sculpting clay and much more! We’re pleased to feature graduates from Universities across the UK who are working with a variety of different making processes. Many of the activities will be participatory and everyone is welcome to join in alongside the artists to create the ambitious site-specific art works.

To find out more about each artist, click their image or name to be linked to their websites.
