London Craft Week is the event not to be missed! It is an annual design week that celebrates international creativity and craftsmanship. Brands and designers that specialize in various techniques such as ceramics, woodworking, metalworking, jewelry, and others will gather from all over the world in the same city, London.
Taking place from 8 until 12 April, London Craft Week will provide engaging workshops, presentations of new collections, art tours, and other wonderful events in different locations within London – all with the same objective: to honor mastership.
We would like to review some of the most important events of London Craft Week that you should definitely visit. Let’s see what are those!
Portuguese Crafts: Once Upon a Time
Portuguese luxury brand Boca do Lobo has collaborated with the porcelain manufacturer Vista Alegre to create a unique piece – Once Upon a Time Pixel cabinet. Contemporary design of this item combined with the delicate hand-painted porcelain will blow your mind! Iconic, exquisite, and refined, this cabinet has absorbed craftsmanship of both brands: Vista Alegre’s attention to details and porcelain painting skills as well as Boca do Lobo’s luxury furniture design that can also be traced in their other products such as console tables, seating, mirrors, etc.
The brands are inviting you to the cocktail reception on May 9th, from 5pm to 9pm at the Portuguese embassy in London. The aforementioned collaboration piece will be showcased during the event. Believe us, it will be worth your attention!
