London Craft Week preview

Something a little different from us in today; Makers House is all about community so as well as sharing our own exhibitions we will occasionally be sending you our picks of the best design and craft shows happening throughout the year. 

London Craft Week which runs from the 9th-12th May seems like the perfect time to start as it is a celebration of making and craft, and is filled with opportunities for you to get your hands dirty!

Keep scrolling for our top tips for must-see shows during Craft Week and if you have any tips of your own please let us know as we will be out and about hunting down the best bits for our blog.

The Future of Craft is a brand new exhibition for London Craft Week and will be held in The Bargehouse behind the Oxo Tower from 9-12th May.  There will be workshops and talks throughout the show and lots of chances to get involved and learn something new.  Makers House founder Georgia Bosson will also be showing some new work at this one!

The  Peckham Craft Show  is a celebration of Contemporary Craft, hosted at Peckham’s Copeland Gallery. Craft Show takes craft out of the trade fair and market stall setting to give beautiful works of craft the space and attention they deserve.   There is a talks and workshops programme as well as a beautifully curated shop where you can pick up work by some of the 50 makers involved in the show.  This is a beautiful show and not to be missed by South Londoners!
