Matt SmithAbout Us


Unravelled is an arts organisation led by Polly Harknett, and Caitlin Heffernan. We celebrate innovation in the arts by working across fine art and craft practice and by offering exhibition opportunities in historic houses where artists and makers can explore how art can evoke histories, stories and a sense of place.

We are currently working with WWT London Wetlands Centre which will see new site-specific works from 2020-2021.

From 2012-2015 we worked with the National Trust on a three-year project developing exhibitions for three properties in the South East called Unravelling the National Trust, along with our former Co-Director Artist and Curator Matt Smith.

We also organise workshops, talks and symposia that encourage dialogue, debate and collaboration between artists who might not otherwise work together. Our objective is to inspire novel ideas and ways of working and give artists, makers and the heritage sector the chance to explore new contexts, new challenges and new audiences.
