London Craft Week
Time Out says
This week-long festival, now in its fifth year celebrates craftsmen beavering away in all in all sorts of interesting nooks and crannies across London. From the smallest off-the-beaten-track atelier to ancient makers’ guilds and luxury retailers, all get stuck into a whole range of events behind-the-scenes demonstrations, hands-on craft workshops, talks, interviews and discussions with fascinating crafts people. Keep an eye on the London Craft Week website for programme updates.

Turned up at the Upholstery workshop in Shoreditch with my 84 year old mother only to find that the charity event listed on the website for Sunday wasn't happening. It was cancelled but the website not updated. I was annoyed because it was a long journey to get to the Design center.
In the past week I have been to Cockpit Arts in Deptford and today Blacks in Soho (See pics).
It's so good that ancient crafts are being supported and displayed.
Cockpit in Holborn and Deptford are two amazing places filled with talented craft-people. Their Open Studio days are a must. The Georgia Goodman exhibits at Blacks just goes to show the love and skill that can go into making a very special pair of shoes. London Craft Week is a good excuse to get out, visit some interesting places and appreciate our city's craftspeople.
