Have you heard about London Craft Week?
It's the craft world's answer to Fashion Week - "a new annual event which showcases exceptional
craftsmanship through a journey-of-discovery programme featuring hidden
workshops, celebrated makers, other lesser known makers and highly
specialised skills alongside famous shops, galleries and luxury brands."
The first London Craft Week is just over a week away and it looks completely amazing. Running from 6th-10th May, there will be a programme of demonstrations, workshops, exhibitions, tours, open studios and talks across the city (some free, some ticketed).
The events will be showcasing and celebrating the craft skills of watchmakers, tailors, jewellers, fashion and textile designers, bootmakers, engravers, hat makers, perfumers, glassblowers, ceramacists, print makers, costumiers, weavers, silversmiths, gun makers, bookbinders... and more!
Even the programme itself is gorgeous - gold pages and maps? Yum.
I am soooo looking forward to this!
