2015 sees the launch of London’s newest industry festival, London Craft Week. Bringing together ancient arts with new talent in this week long festival which is founded on the ethos of making. From Glass blowers to Tailors and of course Embroiderers, united to show off their wares and skills.
“London has long had a Fashion Week and a Design Festival. From 2015, it will have the equivalent for the craft sector: London Craft Week. Featuring the artistic flair, painstaking skills and raw talent of exceptional craftsmanship and, as a result, attracting an ever-increasing quality and volume of collectors and customers.” Guy Salter, Chairman of London Craft Week
