London has long had a Fashion Week and a Design Festival. Now there is London Craft Week. A magical combination of imagination, individuality, passion and skill found in the best-made of things.
Guy Salter, Chairman of London Craft Week
Celebrating outstanding British and international creativity, London Craft Week brings together over 250 established and emerging makers, designers, brands and galleries from around the world. A curated selection based not on price or fame, but underlying substance. Plus, that essential dash of magic and inspiration that separates great from good.
As a small, private not-for-profit organisation, we couldn’t have built up London Craft Week over the last six years without a great deal of help. From the outset, the foresight, shared values and generosity of our founding partner, the Richemont Group, and specifically dunhill and Purdey, along with our other sponsors, have enabled us in turn to enable charities, museums, colleges and galleries, as well as independent makers, to play such a central role. We are enormously grateful to them and to all our programme partners for their ongoing support, contribution and outstanding content.
