London Craft Week returns on 4 October to shine a light on exceptional craftsmanship and tell stories about how some of the finest works of art came to life. Through a rich roster of exhibitions, immersive exhibitions, talks and workshops, it will show how makers are breathing new life into time-old traditions, reinventing materials with sustainability in mind, and pushing craft into the future.
Founded by Guy Salter in 2015, the festival leads you on a treasure trail across the capital to shops, galleries, restaurants and studios. This year’s programme reveals how craft touches all facets of life, including fashion, art, design and food.
With over 250 established and emerging makers, designers, brands and galleries joining the programme, we’ve whittled down our list of seven must-see exhibitions.
