The Edge, University of Bath

The Know-How project includes contributions from creatives, tradespersons, academics, conservationists and local residents, it celebrates the importance of sharing and applying knowledge in our society. The exhibition features an active learning zone, resource room, screening room and lecture hall, unfolding through a unique schedule of events as a live or participatory experience. Activities showcase the wealth of practical and transferable knowledge held by communities in the region. Know-How offers skill-sharing sessions in bee-keeping, plumbing, gardening, sustainable living and design as well as discoverable insights into the natural world, social history, science, technology and the human body.

For the Know-How project, we were commissioned to create five banners to occupy the main gallery space, which also acted as a screening space and lecture hall. These banners suggest ways that people learn in society and the significance of different forms of knowledge. In the second gallery space, which acted as a resource and working room, we filled the walls with a repetitive wallpaper design depicting objects and diagrams that illustrate the learning of particular skills.
