The dining set along with documentation of the project was displayed in the staff kitchen and foyer of the Canal & River Trust’s Milton Keynes offices, creating a talking point for all users of the offices, before beginning its journey with the Fordham Gallery boat. The artists and makers who contributed to the exhibition showed a tremendous enthusiasm for the project, for their local environment, and for sharing it with the Canal & River Trust’s staff through the creation of an opportunity for both parties to converse and discuss their work.
Fordham Gallery is based on a sixty-foot wide beam canal boat travelling the country. Artworks MK is an independent arts and education charity established in 1974. It offers creative workshops, a gallery space and artists’ studios in Milton Keynes and promotes participation, exploration and learning through courses, exhibitions and events.
