Focusing on Hinchcliffe’s experimental, boundary-pushing career.

The study of dyeing, printing and weaving in the Punjab and Rajasthan led the artist, designer and craftsman John Hinchcliffe to realise the extent of the role of simple craft practices in manufacturing, even at its most technical.

Although he is a probably best known – at least to readers of Country Life – as an illustrator, it was as a maker of bright hangings and rugs, woven from strips of cloth, that he produced his most striking work.

Even so, Hinchcliffe worked in a variety of media, not least as a ceramicist, painter and textile printer. Examples of all these feature in this, the first, if posthumous, retrospective of his work.
