The New Craftsmen, founded in 2012, works with a selection of Britain’s finest craft makers to showcase the materials, skills and craft products of the British Isles.
During the London Design Festival they took over a disused, grade two listed staircase (renamed Stairway to Somewhere) along Duke Street, Mayfair. Over the course of five days the space was occupied and transformed to showcase the work of five crafty people currently producing works for the young company.
The artists included:
Stitcher & Calligrapher - Rosalind Wyatt
Natural Dyer & Quilter - Katherine May
Historic Paint Specialist - Pedro da Costa Felgueiras
Potter - Billy Lloyd
Textiles Designer - Aimee Betts
