Girih Treasure Chest by David Linley is on show during London Craft Week
Given how much it has grown already, it’s hard to believeLondon Craft Week is just a year old. But as the initiative celebrates its first birthday (kicking things off once again with an almighty party at the V&A) it’s hard not to sound like an overexcited aunt, pinch its chubby metaphorical cheeks and say “Gosh! How you’ve grown…” Because this second edition is not only almost twice the size of the first (there are more than 130 events taking place across the city compared to last year’s 70) but the quality promises to be even better still – with a surge of interest from potential partners and participants the organisers have had to be ruthless as to what events and exactly who is allowed under the umbrella. But the biggest difference of all? If London Craft Week already feels like an established event on the calendar, then it means craft as a discipline might have finally found its voice.
