May 01.15 – London Craft Week: the best of London makers
We’ve been invited to take part in this year’s London Craft week, which runs from 6 May until the tenth. It’s a showcase of some of the city’s best and brightest creative makers, or to use their own words, it ‘puts craftsmanship centre stage of the world’s creative capital’, through a series of presentations and demonstrations. There are even some ‘hidden’ workshops, which the intrepid among you might want to seek out.
With a whole bunch of craftsmen and women on the line-up, from silversmiths to furniture-makers, glass-blowers to milliners, obviously we’re delighted to be involved – we’re also the only bike builders on the bill.
LCW is about removing the mystique around beautifully-made things and contextualising them with the craft it takes to make them. Instead of experiencing products as ‘branded items in a store’, visitors get to understand the story and process.
We love the spirit of this week and are chuffed to be involved! You can find out more information here.
