The free annual In:Site Festival curated by Craftspace returns to Birmingham Cathedral Square showcasing new bespoke artworks by contemporary craft and design graduates.
Craftspace Festival Birmingham Artworks are inspired by or respond to the unique heritage of the site and the Cathedral’s tercentenary year. Drop by to watch craft skills in action from wood turning and hand-built ceramics to casting jewellery in pewter. Each day will offer a making activity for visitors to try their hand.
The festival is devised in partnership with Colmore Business District, Birmingham Cathedral and Six Eight Kafe and funded by The John Feeney Trust. The artworks remain on display until 13th September.

This year, later in September, In:Site returns at Birmingham Weekender, a weekend of free outdoor performances, art and activities across the city centre. Graphic illustrators Jobe Anderson and Anna Holowko collaborate with textile artist Adele Fitzgerald to create an embroidered artwork using software and a digital sewing machine. Taking Birmingham as inspiration for narrative and characters, visitors are invited to watch and contribute through drawing or stitch.
