Craft Week 2017

Event: May 6th 2017
It’s London Craft Week next month. Retrouvius‘ Maria Speake, Tracey Neuls and journalist Hettie Judah will be in conversation exploring the tactile nature of materials in their design process.

Maria Speake of Architectural salvage and design purveyors Retrouvius and Tracey Neuls discuss the role of craft in their practices. Speake shares her approach of making with reclaimed materials and a history of collaborating with craftspeople — challenging them to engage with rescued materials, with an emphasis on materials and tactility. From reinventing unwanted timbers and textile fragments to re-imagining the traditional form of a shoe, through clay sculpting and highly specialist finishes, these two particular women will discuss their expertise in their respective fields and the role of Craft when realising their designs and visions. Talk chaired by Hettie Judah.

May 6th 2pm – 4pm | Limited availability £18 | Tickets here
