Craft & Form: John Smedley x Zoe Wilson and Alice Walton in Conversation
Join John Smedley and two of their ambassadors for the brand’s 235th anniversary celebrations – stone artist Zoe Wilson and ceramic artist Alice Walton, both QEST scholars – for a short talk hosted by current Managing Director and eighth- generation Smedley family member Ian Maclean on the transformation of raw material into art forms.
Enjoy a panel discussion on how both artists select only the finest raw materials, transforming them into artisan creations of sculptural form on both large and small scales. Learn how this mirrors John Smedley’s own approach to crafting the finest knitwear, and how through a mutual attention to detail the group is working together to tell stories of British craftsmanship in celebration of a special year-long project to mark the brand’s 235th anniversary.
Guests are invited to interact with the panel via an open Q&A, with the opportunity to preview exclusive works from both Zoe Wilson and Alice Walton.
John Smedley’s Craft & Form event is supported by Rémy Martin.
