Lola Lely - The Final Atelier Resident by Stu J Beesley


Young designer Lola Lely drew the The New Craftmen's Atelier series to a close last week with her 'Design Reconstruction' residency. 

It's been a pleasure photographing the four artists in the calm environment of The New Craftmen's Mayfair store over the past few weeks. Learning how they create their pieces and what drives them has been very inspirational. 

The rest of the series can be seen HERE

The New Craftsmen - Atelier by Stu J Beesley

Over the next few weeks I will be documenting the Atelier (workshop of an artist) residencies taking place at The New Craftsmen in Mayfair. The shop floor will be handed over to four craftsmen and women who will make the space their own and produce a range of new and exclusive work while in residency. 

The first to take to the floor was illustrator and ceramicist, Laura Carlin

The second craftsmen to make the Mayfair store their own was potter, Stuart Carey.

Weaver and textile designer Catarina Riccabona came equipped with high-tech loom.
