Any exhibition that includes "jelly mongers" must be worth a mention, which is why a new touring show organised by the Crafts Council, opening in London next month, caught our eye. "Added Value?", featuring six practitioners, will launch at the trade event Designjunction (19-23 September) in the striking surroundings of the Sorting Office in New Oxford Street. Thematic strands include "Brands" and "Materials" while jelly mongers, Bompas & Parr, whose edible, wobbly works of art are made using experimental technologies, feature in the "Experience" section. "The show will question notions of the value of contemporary craft within the present-day landscape of branding and luxury," says a Crafts Council statement.
