Heritage Craft Association meeting Adams Row Mayfair London 4th July 2013
Launch of Heritage Craft Awards – endorsed by HRH The Prince of Wales their President
James Martin from the BBC Handmade revolution is very interested to find material for programs that were about passing on skills to apprentices, hopefully with some royal connection to gain access to a Royal venue.
This temporary venue arranged by the head of Gieves & Hawkes was a converted Mews garage. It is now used as a walk in shop selling high quality hand made goods from a range of crafts – chairs, crockery, treen from Robin Wood, candles, folding knives to name just a few.
Their website is worth a look,it is refreshing to find the massive range of skills and crafts still out there. As Robin Wood mentioned to me at the meeting, it’s everything that goes into the removal van! More importantly - look at the awards on offer. You may well qualify for one.
