I’ve only just come across the line up for London Craft Week via St Brides Foundation who are hosting a range of bookbinding workshops, courses and demonstrations. Beginning tomorrow and with over 40 events ranging from print and bookbinding to glassblowing and ceramics there is something to interest anybody with a like of making, process, technique and of course, craft.
The highlights for me include The Craft of Wallpaper exhibition at the wonderful Geffrye Museum in East London and Social Fabric at the William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow which is offering behind the scenes tours and the opportunity to handle and print with Morris’ famous woodblocks. Also at the Geffrye Museum at the moment is Social Fabric: African Textiles Today, which is a brilliant exhibition I saw at the British Museum a couple of years ago and has beautiful and thought provoking examples of how printed textiles are designed and worn as a communication of beliefs in a number of African cultures. More about that exhibition, which is on until the 29th May here.
