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.
A shame that it still seems not to have caught on like similar well established events like the London Fashion or Design weeks. But those in the know are lapping it all up with most free and paid-for events fully booked within days.
