This is the first ever retrospective exhibition by the extraordinary jeweller, textile artist and 3D designer Nora Fok. The artist has established herself as a pioneering maker, transforming organic forms into wearable, ethereal sculpture. Her delicate, intricate forms are woven from nylon microfilament. This is a spectacular chance to see this wonderful jewellery in Gateshead.
