British Craft Pavilion

The Crafts Council and the London Design Fair are delighted to introduce the first British Craft Pavilion at the 2016 edition of the London Design Festival. The British Craft Pavilion 2016 will showcase a host of designers, makers and crafts people working through a range of mediums such as glass, ceramics and wood to create contemporary craft pieces. Employing intelligent ways of thinking and experimental ways of making, this year's exhibitors are reimagining and reviving British craft.

The British Craft Pavilion will showcase more than twenty eminent designers and makers, as part of London Design Fair. Selected by an industry panel, comprising of representatives from Crafts Council, London Design Fair and Grant Gibson of Crafts magazine, the pavilion will showcase Britain's most prominent contemporary craft pieces.

Crafts Council and The New Craftsmen present Nature Lab as part of this year's British Craft Pavilion at London Design Fair. An immersive experience, it tells the story of nature transformed by six craft talents.

Each maker has developed radical new techniques to transform such everyday substances as wood, sand, salt, clay, flowers and ice into objects of wonder. The six makers in Nature Lab are Eleanor Lakelin; Emily Gardiner; Jochen Holz; Joseph Harrington; Marcin Rusak; and Marlène Huissoud.
