London Craft Week 2017

London Craft Week 2017

London Craft Week was a dream come true for all creatives, the streets of London were flooded with exhibitions, workshops and shows. London Craft Week is an annual event that showcases exceptional craftsmanship through a journey-of-discovery programme featuring hidden workshops and unknown makers alongside celebrated masters, famous studios, galleries, shops and luxury brands.
After visiting a few workshops and galleries we were left feeling super inspired by all the designers/craftspeople and their amazing exhibitions. 
We would love to share our faves with you!
1. Cox London: How to commission furniture
The design makers Nicola and Christopher Cox Talk about how to commission handmade furniture and lighting. Cox London is a beautiful furniture boutique located in Belgravia SW1W 8UP. This was really inspiring all the furniture had amazing detail with a natural earthy vibe.

2. Mulberry: The Passion of Making

It takes 9 Months to make a Mulberry bag? Thats how long it takes to make a baby! At the beautiful Mulberry store on New Bond Street the friendly staff held a nice demonstration talking us through the nine-month process of making a Mulberry bag, showing us each step from the sketches to the interior.

4. Tom Pigeon Collection at Fritz Hansen.

 

 And last but not least, we swung by Fritz Hansen to get a good look at the amazing Tom Pigeon Collection. The Tom Pigeon collection "shipwrecked" was extremely inspiring, the use of natural shapes and subtle colours really related to our own work. The shipwrecked collection was inspired by rhythms and forms of natural and manmade objects washed up on Scottish shores.
