Dual Works are highly skilled designer makers who have over 50 years of combined expertise across a wide range of materials, techniques and processes. They enjoy the making process from the initial idea through to the production and installation of a wide variety of design projects. Their workshop bursts with colour and energy and makes every idea seem possible.
Over the last year they have continued to deliver their “Girls with Power Tools” workshops which provide skills, knowledge and yes power to the participants. It’s this skill sharing that makes working with Dual Works so exciting.
Collaborating with Royal Birmingham Society of Artists and Touch Base Pears this year Dual Works created a fantastic array of articulated pieces that enabled people to make sense of the space around them and communicate. A commission at The Memorial Arboretum sees their work as a back drop to a heartfelt exhibition. They have even found time to create a mobile hair salon! We are just scratching the surface of their output this year so do ask them about commissions whilst you are there.
With lots more on display than we can list in this short introduction, over the Jewellery Quarter Open Studios weekend you will also be able to see Quarter.haus a collection of beautifully handcrafted products for the home, made on site in their workshop. Quality materials, bright colours and attention to detail mean that these pieces fit in any home.
True supporters of the Jewellery Quarter and its many artisans be sure to visit this workshop on Kenyon Street.
