From the V&A to The Shard and off-the-beaten track side streets to The House of Lords, hidden studios to Mayfair stores and bustling workshops to Michelin starred restaurants, London Craft Week is back for the third time and bursting with exciting opportunities.
From 3rd to 7th May, London Craft Week takes up residence in the capital. Bringing together events from all corners of the globe combining design, fashion, art, luxury, food, culture and shopping to create the annual event that showcases the very best international and British creativity and craftsmanship.
The Programme is made up of fifty-five disciplines including boat building, silversmithing, watchmaking, leatherworking, tailoring and glass-blowing and even the Japanese art of Kintsugi. From unknown makers to celebrated masters, famous designers, brands, galleries, international artists and makers from our home turf.
Demonstrations, workshops, exhibitions, handling sessions, talks, drinks, dinners and parties ensure there is something for everyone with an interest, from the simply curious to the dedicated collector.
‘London Craft Week is a response to a renaissance in the appreciation of creativity and craft; to the role of hand, head, unique skills and true talent. It is another example of what, at its best, the world’s creative capital does so well – mixing glamour with cutting edge; heritage and contemporary and the commercial with the cultural.’ – Guy Salter OBE MVO, Chairman, London Craft Week.
