Somerset’s magnificent Barrington Court was transformed in September 2013 by five internationally-renowned makers. Using locally sourced willow, paper, wood, leather and stone, the new dynamic works  acknowledged the contribution of the local raw material suppliers and local manufacturers to the local economy and ecology of the county. The Make the Most exhibition was a core element within the Somerset Art Weeks 2013.  The National Trust  offered Barrington Court as a venue – some of the works were commissioned specifically for display within the house.
