About

Vigour and Skills is an artisanal concept store connecting customers with the best of British makers. V+S is hosting a series of live demonstrations and talks during London Craft Week, thanks to their community of makers in ceramics, leather, jewellery and rush weaving.

V+S is proud to share every stage of their maker’s creative process to inspire a more personalised shopping experience with the aim of reshaping how we shop, focusing on sustainability, storytelling and craftsmanship. Every piece on display at London Craft Week has been thrown, painted, woven, spun, whittled, blown or dyed in its own unique way to create exceptional one-off pieces.
