Royal unveiling of London Craft Week’s programme

The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall visited the Art Workers Guild today to mark the launch of London Craft Week’s official programme.

Daylesford on Craft, The Maker and Sustainability

 

To illustrate the breadth of London Craft Week’s inaugural programme, which will comprise over 50 craft demonstrations across London from 6 to 10 May, Their Royal Highnesses were presented with ‘The Suit’, deconstructed to reveal the many elements of skill needed to create one item. Those who contributed include designer Patrick Grant, spinner and knitter Rachael Matthews, Savile Row tailor Kathryn Sargent, livery tailor Keith Levett from Henry Poole & Co, Daniel Harris, a weaver from London Cloth, and for the finishing touch, Hawthorn and Heany, who embroidered the maker’s label. The Prince of Wales then tried his own hand at pattern cutting.
