See skilled makers in action during London Craft Week

The first annual London Craft Week runs from 6 to 10 May with chances to see skilled jewellers and other craftspeople show off their skills and wares at venues across the capital and even opportunities to try crafts for yourself.

London Craft Week was founded by Vacheron Constantin, the world’s oldest watch-makers in continuous production, and is backed by the Mayor of London, the Crafts Council, Walpole and the Heritage Crafts Association. “London has long had a Fashion Week and a Design Festival. From 2015, it will have the equivalent for the craft sector. Featuring the artistic flair, painstaking skills and raw talent of exceptional craftsmanship and, as a result, attracting an ever-increasing quality and volume of collectors and customers.” Guy Salter, founder and chairman of London Craft Week.
