Can design and craft make Britain strong again? This is one of the numerous talks penciled for the third edition of the London Craft Week taking place across London this spring. The answer could be a resounding ‘yes’ judging by the staggering array of demonstrations and scheduled events; from Savile Row demonstrations about how to make a three-piece suit at Gieves and Hawkes; making robots at the Science Museum; monograming a handkerchief or cufflinks; creating a West End show; and conserving Big Ben.
