Curated by Oxo Tower Wharf, alongside project collaborators Design-Nation and Future Icons, The Future of Craft is a carefully selected line up of innovative and forward-thinking craft organisations, practitioners and collectives presented across five floors in the raw, industrial settings of Bargehouse. The Future of Craft partner networks Design-nation and Future Icons will each present headline installations at the show.

Design-Nation will showcase new projects and products by leading makers from across their portfolio including Amy Leigh, Christine Meyer-Eaglestone, Emma-Jane Rule, Georgia Bosson, Jacky Puzey, Jacqueline James, Julie Vernon, Lucy Elisabeth, Leszek Sikon, Linda Bloomfield, Maria Sigma, Michelle House, Raw Studio, Speckled Grey and Susannah Weiland.

Future Icons will present a curated mix of new and established hand-crafted projects by sixteen interior led artists across ceramics, furniture, lighting, metalwork and textiles including Vezzini & Chen, RHMB, Barnaby Goode, Richard McVetis and Cristabel Balfour.

Elsewhere in the building, visitors will enjoy installations and demonstrations from craftspeople including Design-Nation members Fung & Bedford, Helen Yardley, Margo Selby, Sarah Villeneau, Angie Parker and Anna Gravelle, as well as an interactive installation of Catinca Tilea’s #1minutelamp.

The event will also feature a special installation of David Penny’s Screen for Another Focus. This moving image installation and series of photographic works were produced during an artist residency at Dovecot Tapestry Studio. The immersive projection focuses on the object and materials that build the weavers’ world and the familiarity of actions and muscle memory in the body that all come into play in the process and activity of weaving.Screen for Another Focus will form part of this year’s Real to Reel: The Craft Film Festival, presented by Crafts Council.

The Future of Craft will host a thought-provoking talks programme including a one-day seminar hosted by Ceramics Research Centre-UK. Group discussions and presentations will address topics such as Future Craft and Culture with speakers such as Clare Twomey, Phoebe Cummings and Tessa Peters. More to be announced soon.

Visitors will have the chance to get involved with hands-on craft workshops with Yodomo, who deliver creative learning experiences, including sessions such as Make a Terrariumwith London Terrariums, An Introduction to Embroidery with Embellished Talk and Rise and Shine shoe shine with shoemakers Carreducker, and many more still to be announced.
