'Notions of Imperfection' at Toast

Christina Hesford

Toast Logo.jpg

I have been invited to show my first solo exhibition, ‘Notions of Imperfection’, at Toast, Shoreditch. This exhibition will coincide with London Design Festival and Shoreditch Design Triangle. I will be showing a collection of work comprising some older work which has been re-imagined, alongside brand new pieces. This collection challenges notions of beauty and perfection by using something imperfect, a knot, to create something beautiful; to see imperfection as perfection.

Exhibition Dates: 9th September - 25th September
Location: Toast, 42 Redchurch Street, Shoreditch

I will also be running a drop-in weaving workshop on 18th September. Tickets are available here:

Christina Hesford

This year I will be exhibiting with the Trouping Colour collective at at Clerkenwell Design Week. I will be showing some new work as well as showing Dénouement in the UK for the first time. These pieces will sit alongside work by some of the UK’s newest and most talented makers and designers such as Evan James Design, Anna-Lisa Smith, and Studio 9191. Trouping Colour describes itself as ‘undiscovered talent joining forces to tour different venues, grouped together by a prestigious design thinker who recognises their future stock potential’.

Exhibition Dates: 28 Jul 2018 – 8 Sep 2018

New Ashgate Gallery, Waggon Yard, Farnham, GU9 7PS
Tue-Sat: 10am - 5pm
Free admission


'To Repair with Gold' will soon be on the move again as it heads to New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham to be a part of the Hothouse: Selected exhibition. 

'To Repair with Gold' is a series of handwoven panels exploring the idea of kintsugi: the Japanese art of repairing and broken ceramics with gold or silver lacquer and the understanding that the object is more beautiful for having been broken. 

They will be shown alongside work by fellow Hothouse 2017 participants Verity Howard and Tim Evershed, as well as participants from previous cohorts such as jeweller Heather McDermott and ceramicist Elaine Bolt. It will be a delight to have work in the same room as these talented craftspeople!

New Ashgate Gallery said, 'This exhibition celebrates fresh, innovative and bespoke craft and is part of our programme to exhibit some of the most exciting makers to art lovers and collectors."
