“Those exhibiting have absorbed the traditional skills and ethos and succeeded in making beautiful and meaningful work that speaks to a contemporary audience. Their work will reflect skills fundamental to the arts of many of the great traditions of the world,” says Simon Trethewey, director of studies at The Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts.
