Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour is one of the world’s premier destinations for design and decoration. During London Craft Week it is the home of Artefact, the contemporary craft fair.

Now in its third year, Artefact brings the joy of the handcrafted to designers, architects, collectors and craft-curious enthusiasts. Celebrating and championing the highest levels of creativity, see outstanding work from established and emerging makers and artists. An impressive roll call of contemporary craft and visual arts galleries includes Cavaliero Finn, Jaggedart, Katie Jones Gallery, Louisa Warfield Art, Madeinbritaly, Mixed Metals and Vessel Gallery, plus many more. Their highly influential, curatorial choices bring a new dynamic and excitement to the world of decorative art.

Seeing objects in person gives a true measure of the ingenuity and effort involved in their making. The imagination, beauty and techniques on display at the show attest to the relevance of collectible craft today, with artisans engaging in different media, from ceramics and metalwork to glass, sculpture, textiles, paper and wood. Transforming an idea into reality takes skill and vision; from revitalising heritage techniques and cutting-edge innovation to unlocking the potential of materials and artisan processes. At Artefact, gain a greater understanding of how one-of-a-kind designs are conceived and made, as well as acquire unique work to cherish for years to come.

Artefact is a must-visit for international design professionals sourcing unique pieces for prestigious residential projects, hotels and yachts, as well as curators and collectors seeking individual work for museums, public institutions and private collections. Presenting a range of objects of astonishing breadth, scope and artistic merit from accomplished makers, alongside talks and demonstrations, the event presents a unique collective.
