London Craft Week
The Guild is holding two events over London Craft Week, between 8 - 12 May 2019.
Unveiled – The Craft of Millinery
Wednesday 8 - Friday 10 May
This exhibition brings together British milliners, chosen for their diverse designs and skills, to give an insight into the particular workings and craftsmanship of each. Curated by leading milliners and Brothers of the Guild, Rachel Trevor Morgan, Edwina Ibbotson and Noel Stewart, the exhibition draws on their experience and knowledge to bring together the best of British millinery, including hats from Stephen Jones, Philip Treacy and Bro. Bridget Bailey. Their aim is to highlight the very special craft of millinery and its varied techniques, both modern and traditional. A working gallery forms part of the exhibition, where you can see hats being made over the three days. There is also a display of winning hats from the annual Feltmakers’ Design Competition.
Included in the week are ticketed talks and demonstrations. For more details, please see the website.
