The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall mark the launch of London Craft Week
Their Royal Highnesses were escorted through the building to meet some of the UK’s most sought-after craftsmen.


LONDON.- The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall today, Thursday 5th February 2015, visited the Art Workers Guild in Queens Square, London to mark the launch of London Craft Week, 6-10 May 2015. The week is dedicated to demonstrating excellence in craftsmanship and to celebrate the long standing and important role of ‘making’ in London. The week was launched at the Art Workers Guild Building.

The Art Workers Guild has gathered great craftsmen together in its historic building for over 125 years. The Guild is currently engaged in a fund-raising project to improve the facilities, to enable the hosting of its active outreach programme and growing membership. Its aim is to raise standards of craft in the UK, through apprenticeships, nourishment of inter-disciplinary relationships, and providing a home for intellectual discussion. For more information on the Guild and its fund-raising appeal visit www.artworkersguild.org

Their Royal Highnesses were greeted by Master of the Guild, Anthony Paine, and by Guy Salter, founder of London Craft Week, who escorted the royal party through the building to meet some of the UK’s most sought-after craftsmen, leaders of industry and witnessed makers at work.

To illustrate the breadth of London Craft Week’s inaugural programme, which will comprise over 50 craft demonstrations across London from 6 to 10 May. Their Royal Highnesses were presented with ‘The Suit’, deconstructed to reveal the many elements of skill needed to create one item. Those who contributed include designer Patrick Grant, spinner and knitter Rachael Matthews, Savile Row tailor Kathryn Sargent, livery tailor Keith Levett from Henry Poole & Co, Daniel Harris, a weaver from London Cloth, and for the finishing touch, Hawthorn and Heany, who embroidered the maker's label. The Prince of Wales then tried his own hand at pattern cutting. For more details about London Craft Week’s programme visit www.londoncraftweek.com.

Guy Salter, Founder of London Craft Week, said; “We are delighted to be welcoming Their Royal Highnesses to the launch of London Craft Week here at the Art Workers’ Guild, an initiative that puts really talented makers and exceptional craftsmanship centre stage, using London as a platform, and taking advantage of its position as a creative hub.”

Anthony Paine, Master of the Guild, said: “The Guild’s passion is encouraging good skills in making, so we are delighted to be supporting the launch of London Craft Week. Crafts are finally getting the recognition that fashion and the fine arts have enjoyed in London for some time.”
