Shy Bairns

Shy Bairns is the collective practice of artists, designers and curators Izzy Kroese, George Gibson, Eleanor Haswell and Erin Blamire based in Manchester. Their new work, Shy Bairns Fill The Void: Developing Our Creative Practice, looks at the often hidden process of artistic progression and makes it visible within the exhibition itself. The installation is centred around a new publication which documents the process of the group working together on various small development projects including learning new skills from each other, peers, and fellow practitioners across the UK.
