Demonstration and Drinks at Sinclair Till with Vandra Rugs’ Ukrainian weavers Alina and Victoria
Sinclair Till, London specialists in carpets and rugs, will host a week-long demonstration by weavers Alina and Victoria who have traveled from Kosiv, Ukraine to take part in our carousel of crafts. A loom will line their Pimlico showroom as the weavers display their technique and artistry.
Sinclair Till, London’s leading specialist in custom carpets and rugs, is hosting a week of demonstrations and a drinks reception at their Pimlico Road storefront to celebrate the arrival of Ukrainian weavers, Alina Zvizdetska and Viktoria Ahatieva. The evening will feature complimentary canapés and cocktails, all inspired by Ukrainian cuisine.
In collaboration with their sister-brand, Vandra Rugs, Sinclair Till will host Alina and Viktoria for the entirety of London Craft Week as they take to the loom to demonstrate the intricacies involved in handcrafting bespoke rugs.
In Ukraine, female weavers tend to be the main providers of their household. Like the work they weave, these women embody great strength and stability. In honour of their resilient nature, Sinclair Till is also holding a raffle to raise money for Ukrainian relief funds. Raffle tickets cost £50, with an unlimited amount available for each person to purchase. The winner will receive a custom Vandra rug worth up to £5000. Tickets can be bought at Sinclair Till’s store or website throughout the week.
