London Craft Week is an annual event that showcases exceptional craftsmanship through a programme featuring hidden workshops and unknown makers, celebrated masters, famous studios, galleries, shops and luxury brands.
Is held across London from Mayfair to Shoreditch and from Greenwich to Hampstead ensuring that a wide range of museums and galleries, studios and workshop spaces, as well as shops and luxury brands are involved.
Half of the events are free to attend and half are open house so no need to book. Other events need pre-booking at a cost, these events have a link which takes you to each partner’s ticketing site.
Returns to the capital for 4th edition from 9-13 May 2018. Celebrating British and international creativity, the festival brings together established and emerging makers, designers, brands and galleries from around the world.
The programme aims to attract a broad audience united in their appreciation of imagination, individuality, passion, and skill. A curated programme of events across London allows visitors to create their own itinerary, meet the makers and gain access to exclusive exhibitions, demonstrations and workshops.
London Craft Week reflects a global trend, with increasingly discerning visitors searching out objects of beauty and substance against a flowering of craftsmanship worldwide. It bridges iconic heritage and contemporary brands as well as independent makers and allows them to tell their stories. Each year, with the city as its backdrop, our week-long event shines a spotlight on artists and makers and celebrates a golden age of creative talent.
As a small private not-for-profit organization, could not have done this without a great deal of help. Indeed, the sponsors and programme partners generous support enables charities, museums, colleges, and galleries, as well as independent makers, to play such a central role.
