We organise exhibitions to showcase the art and crafts of highly skilled women artisans and entrepreneurs from Pakistan

Huner UK is proud to announce an exhibition of art and crafts from Pakistan. Examples include ceramics, jewelery, silverware, clothing, soft furnishings, leather goods, decorations and more.

 

This exhibition will showcase the splendors of unique Pakistani art and craft. We hope that this exhibition will increase public awareness of Pakistani craft and to open up business opportunities for these talented artisans. There are so many highly skilled and talented women artisans in Pakistan producing unique and high quality art and craft. Although well known in Pakistan, these designers haven't had much exposure in Britain.

 

These artisans form a diverse of self-taught professionals who have gravitated to their chosen specialisations as a way of expressing themselves and upholding the traditions of arts and crafts of Pakistan.

 

Some of the work depict centuries old craft which only a handful of artisans still have the skill to make. From the jewelry to silverware each piece is a unique masterpiece.  Our aim to make this exhibition a yearly event, to be a bridge between women Pakistani artisans and the British market. Also to open up opportunities to work in collaboration with British designers and businesses.
