Michelin-starred executive chef Michael Wignall has his own distinct way of serving dishes, using handmade tableware as part of the presentation. As co-curator of Plate Up he’s selected a delicious array of contemporary craftwork (silverware, dishes, furniture) by makers inspired by the cooking and serving of food, in this unique showcase of a top chef’s aesthetic and cultural influences.

Open daily, 10am-5.30pm. Free entry.
