About the London Craft Week
From the 4th – 10th October, London Craft Week (LCW) returns for its seventh edition with a curated programme of events across the capital, showcasing exceptional craftsmanship from emerging and celebrated makers.
LCW tells the stories behind some of the world’s most beautiful objects. It brings visitors together through workshops, immersive experiences, pop-up stores and unique exhibitions with extraordinary craftsmanship, independent makers and leading luxury brands. LCW champions the art of making, from contemporary practices to heritage crafts and endangered skills.
This year’s festival will span the fields of craft, art, design, fashion, luxury, food and beauty. It will illuminate the creativity that took place during the pandemic and showcase the best of British craftsmanship, as well as collectable art pieces, innovative sustainable practices, exclusive new launches and special presentations of master makers from around the world.
Explore Islington Square during London Craft Week this year. 3rd-10th October.
