A selection of bespoke contemporary furniture giving a glimpse into small, exceptional, yet often overlooked workshops of master craftsmen and women from across the UK. On Tuesday, the designer-makers behind the exhibits gather to share the inspiration behind their work, how it was made, and why commissioning a cabinet-maker is more fulfilling than buying off the shelf.
Every year Celebration of Craftsmanship & Design scours the country for the best designer-makers of contemporary furniture to exhibit at their August exhibition in Cheltenham, the largest exhibition of such work in the UK. This selection of 35 pieces from 21 workshops delivers a sneak peek of 2016's exceptional event to Clerkenwell and represents a rare opportunity to see the diverse work of so many furniture designer-makers together in London.
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.
We will be open to the public from 12 noon - 7pm daily with a 'Meet the Maker' day on Tuesday 3rd May when all of the exhibitors will be present to discuss their work. Please note, there will be no entry fee for this exhibtion.
