Fortnum & Mason is delighted to be partnering with the Heritage Crafts Association for a focus on endangered crafts and the HCA Red List throughout London Craft Week.
Throughout the week starting 4th October 2021, you will be able to see displays of information and photographs at the flagship Piccadilly store, and from midday on Friday 8 October watch demonstrations from endangered craft practitioners such as scissor making, bee skep making and basketwork furniture making. In attendance will be Ernest Wright scissor makers, the winners of the inaugural HCA President’s Award for Endangered Crafts, shortlisted by a panel that included Fortnum & Mason Chair Kate Hobhouse and selected by HCA President HRH The Prince of Wales.
Come along and find out more about endangered crafts and what you can do to help us safeguard them.
