PARTNER: Makers of The New Craftsmen & Fox & Squirrel
PROJECT: Made of Mayfair
DATE: May 2015
In order to shine a light on the rich artisanal history of Mayfair, we encouraged seven makers to develop work arising from a socio-cultural investigation of the area.
We commissioned Fox&Squirrel – makers of walks for the culturally curious – to document Mayfair as a resource for our makers to create pieces for London Craft Week 2015. Ultimately these craftspeople used this investigation as a vehicle to tell a story of place and craft.
With skills ranging from embroidery to letterpress printing, the makers created unique designs and one-off pieces that successfully represented the place where craft has such significant heritage, and still has a lasting presence today.
