Look how lovely is looks!
They’ve started doing tours led by designer-makers.
It looks a lot of fun.

Alas, one of the very few downsides of having a lovely full time job is that you don’t always get to stuff in the day. And this smashing event, which celebrates the awesome people who pass on craft skills, would have been a cracker. Ol’ Prince Charles is there, Allsopp’s hosting, and a smogasbord of lovely craft people and hanging out for the day.
Next year, I hope.

To celebrate COLLECT, the International Art Fair for Contemporary Objects at the Saatchi gallery, I was asked by the Craft Council to choose one of my favourite pieces from the show.
Who wouldn’t have gone for Bracelet ‘Koi’ by David Bielander, 2012? I love it because it’s beautiful AND functional (Dave, if you want to lend it to me next year for my wedding …)
