‘Teapots to Tapestries: A Celebration of Skills’ at Fortum & Mason

Posted at 3:00 pm, May 14, 2011 in Shopping & Style

© Fortum & MasonIn this day and age when practically everything is machine-made, Fortum & Mason‘s tribute to independent handmade craft is a welcome treat. Showcasing a variety of objects, ‘Teapots to Tapestries’ (opening Monday) celebrates traditional artisanal techniques like gilding, engraving, embossing, embroidery, weaving, glass blowing and book binding. Looking is free, but everything on display is for sale (from £25) and there’s a chance to meet highly-skilled technicians to learn more about these crafts.

For info, see fortnumandmason.com.
