London Craft Week returns bigger and better with a programme of over 130 events across the city, featuring hidden workshops and unknown makers alongside celebrated masters, famous studios, galleries, shops and luxury brands.
The highly successful first London Craft Week held last year had 20,000 visitors and a cast including HRH The Prince of Wales, Grayson Perry and 350 makers. The week allows visitors to meet and talk to some of the world’s most respected makers and artists. Visitors will see world-class fragrances being developed scent by scent, diamonds being cut & polished, porcelain being hand painted, silver being shaped, glass being blown and Chinese calligraphy being performed live. All against the backdrop of London in locations as diverse as Selfridges to Chelsea Physic Garden.
The London Craft Week 2016 programme is held at venues including museums and galleries, studios and workshop spaces, as well as shops and luxury brands.
Some of the highlights include:
Mulberry Autumn Winter 2016 Capsule Collection Launch , Wedgwood at the V&A , Commissioning Luxury Interiors with Helen Chislett , Vanguard Studio Tour , Behind the Scenes Workshop Visit to Asprey with Cocktail Tasting , Watchmaking at Vacheron Constantin, From Crowns to Headdresses at Garrard and Wang Dongling at the British Museum
About half of the events are free to attend and open house so no need to book. Other events need pre-booking at the Craft Week website.
