About

‘Crafted In Britain’ is an exhibition of some of the finest and most exciting British-made interiors brands. From weaving to metalwork, it draws together diverse disciplines from across the country.

Kingcome sustains and nourishes the English furniture-making tradition, creating artisan crafted, heirloom sofas, chairs and stools, handmade to sit comfortably at the heart of your home. Their craftspeople, whose disciplines range from cabinet making, carpentry and wood turning, to pattern cutting, upholstery, machine sewing and hand sewing, handmake each piece of furniture in their Devonshire workshop.

Local craftspeople are the heart of Porta Romana, who are fortunate enough to work with exceptional makers from across the British Isles. Every glassblower, ceramicist, metalworker and sculptor brings their expert knowledge to the fabrication of the designs and imprints each one with a unique character. In nurturing established and emerging British artisans, Porta Romana is able to keep the majority of production local with a hand finishing and painting studio in the heart of Surrey.

Based in the small Scottish coastal towns of Ayr and the home of cashmere, Hawick, Begg x Co makes and designs every collection at their mill. With cinematic skies at the window and an abundance of beaches, mountains and lochs at the door, Scotland’s rugged coastline is endlessly inspiring. Stark yet staggeringly beautiful, Ayr’s paradox of industry and nature is at the heart of everything Begg x Co do. Every piece is imagined and realised with meticulous care and dedication. With a focus on craftsmanship and quality, the highly skilled team of weavers and knitters use the finest natural noble fibres, sustainable cashmere, wool and silk to make the most exquisite sweaters, scarves, blankets, wraps and stoles.

As part of London Craft Week, Porta Romana are thrilled to present a unique lampshade making workshop. At this two hour session, you will be guided on how to make your own lampshade utilising beautiful Colefax and Fowler fabrics. This is the perfect introduction for anyone wanting to try their hand at lampshade making.
