While previous shows have focused on aspects such as metalworks and architectural elements, this sixth exhibition focuses, as the title suggests, on casting and moulding as a means of manufacture.

An eclectic range of designers has been brought together – including Barber Osgerby, Gitta Gschwender, Max Lamb and Peter Marigold. The Aram Gallery says the intention is to show the range of moulding techniques used across different design disciplines – product, furniture, jewellery and architecture.
