London Craft Week returns for its sixth year with a 10-day programme celebrating the capital's emerging and established craftspeople, designers, makers and brands, with more than 250 events running from 30 September to 10 October.
Future Icons showcase and ticketed events at Burlington Arcade, Mayfair
Guarded by London’s liveried Beadles, Burlington Arcade is one of the capital’s most prestigious shopping rows, dating back to 1819. Future Icons, the design collective, is taking over a retail space beneath the arches throughout September, showcasing new work by 12 leading practitioners. Highlights include mixed media artwork by Clare Coles and Kate Lewis; one-of-a-kind porcelain by Judy McKenzie and handmade trinket boxes by Kevin Stamper.
Burlington Arcade is also hosting events across its boutiques throughout London Craft Week. Globe-Trotter has collaborated with Vitale Barberis Canonico, one of Italy’s oldest fabric mills, on a limited-edition collection of sustainably produced luggage, while Lalique is celebrating 100 years of Rene Lalique's Villa by hosting a live-streamed panel discussion on Thursday 8 October between Antiques Roadshow’s Eric Knowles and Lalique UK’s Managing Director Frederick Fischer. Tickets cost £120 and include a Lalique champagne glass and a bottle of Lalique champagne to enjoy during the conversation.
