And if you fancy going further afield
A tube stop or bus ride fromCOLLECT
you’ll find the Victoria&AlbertMuseum,
where theCrafts Council’s partnership
exhibition
What is Luxury?

opened. The show, inwhat could be
viewed as a conceptual companion piece
toCOLLECT, interrogates ideas of luxury
in contemporary design andmaking. If you
feel like going further afield, LondonCraft
Week, 6-10May, in its inaugural year, has
brought together a programme of open
studios, talks and shows spanning from
tattoo parlours in the East End to Fortnum
&Mason. Formore onLondonCraftWeek,
