London Craft Week 2023 this May

London Craft Week runs from 8-14 May 2023. The annual event celebrates outstanding British and international creativity, bringing together over 750 established and emerging makers, designers, brands and galleries from around the world.

Among those taking part are several glass artists, including glassblowers, engravers and casters. Find out about their exhibitions and workshops via this link.

Glassblower Michèle Oberdieck will be showing with Contemporary Applied Arts (CAA), as part of ‘Seven: Seven Decades, Seven Makers, Seven Disciplines’. This week-long exhibition showcases one maker for each applied arts discipline of ceramics, wood, glass, jewellery, metal, paper and textiles.

Meanwhile glassworker Trine Drivsholm will be exhibiting with Flow Gallery as part of ‘Constructing Space: An exhibition of Danish contemporary craft’.

Handblown glass firm Molten 1090 will present a demonstration at their studio, reflecting on their circular design ethos, followed by an informal Q&A. Their East London studio will be open for the whole of London Craft Week.

Glass sculptures are one facet of the work of Kira Phoenix K’inan. She will be taking part in ‘Future Icons Selects’, which presents over 70 leading makers from across Europe in a curated, industrial setting at Oxo Tower Wharf’s Bargehouse. Another artist showing in this exhibition is London-based glass artist Kate Maestri. She works to commission on large-scale architectural glass installations and small-scale glass wall sculptures for interiors. Jennifer Hackett, known as Glass By Butler, makes sculptural glasswork. See her pieces in ‘Future Icons Selects’.

For those interested in a creative glass workshop during London Craft Week, Maria Zulueta, senior lecturer at Morley College London, is offering different classes at the North Kensington Centre. Find out more and book here.

Aside from glass, there is a wealth of events and exhibitions, featuring all types of craftsmanship, to enjoy across the city. Find out more about London Craft Week 2023 here.
