Royal Academy, London, UK 2014
Crafted: Makers of the Exceptional is an important retrospective and celebration of the work of some of Britain’s most talented designer makers. Bringing together those who have been supported by Walpole British Luxury through the Crafted mentoring programme, the showcase provides a glimpse into the inner workings of Britain’s finest craft businesses.
The artisans’ workshop spaces are recreated in The Royal Academy, London, and tell the story behind each stage of the craft-making creative process – from raw material to finished work. The focus is on the people as well as the products with live demonstrations and chances to meet the makers.
