Something for the weekend – London Craft Week

London Craft Week opened for its second year running this week with a wide range
of exhibitors shedding light on the connection between craft and luxury. It’s a
wonderful time to see
exceptional
craftsmanship up close and personal by visiting hidden workshops and seeing
unknown makers alongside celebrated masters. Last year
the first London Craft Week launched with 70 events. This year there is a packed programme of
activities with 130 events, demonstrations and showcases happening across the
city. Visit Londoncraftweek.com for details

Some
of my favourites on this years list have included
Saddlery with The King’s Troop here
At Home with Carl Hansen & Son and Mourne Textiles here and Weaving at Ace Hotel here 

Still to come this weekend that I’d recommend visiting are:

The Craft of Wallpaper at
The Geffrye Museum on until Sunday (book tickets here), 
Making a LOEWE Handbag here and having been recently to see glass blowing in Murano going to the London Glassblowing demonstrations would be ideal. 

Window with a View on
Pimlico Road which last year was a roaring success (image above & below showing Linley and 
Ossowski). Is a chance to see true
creativity and real handmade quality in detail as well as meet some of the
world’s most respected makers and artists here along the Pimlico Road. 

If you value craftsmanship, then London Craft Week
is one of the month’s must-visit events. I h
ope you get a chance to pop
along as the weather is going to delicious in London this weekend.
