London Craft Week 13-14 May 2022


Since 2016, the Art School has participated in London Craft Week, an annual event that showcases exceptional craftsmanship through a journey-of-discovery programme around the city.

FRIDAY 13 MAY (10:00-17:00) & SATURDAY 14 MAY  (10:00-18:00) 2022

For the 2022 edition of London Craft Week, the Art School will be hosting two days’ of activities exploring the properties, uses and conservation of paper, to mark the launch of our 2022-23 research programme, Material Matters: Paper.

Throughout the two-day event, our Tutors, students and Fellows will be running paper-related demonstrations and showcasing a series of specialist paper conservation and fine art techniques, taught on our renowned degree courses.

The printmaking workshops are now fully booked. Please check our booking page again as places may become available, or register on our waiting list.

Visitors will have the opportunity to learn the traditional process of ‘blind printing’ with printmaker and artist, Kristina Chan, who is hosting a series of one-hour, hands-on workshops for adults (18+) on Saturday 14 May. Blind printing is the historic Intaglio printing process without the ink, so you’ll leave the workshop with beautiful debossed artwork but no inky fingers!

The one-hour workshops are £5 (+ booking fee) per person. Booking is essential – booking page

Our wood and stone carving studios will be open throughout the two days, and you can cast your vote in our ever-popular carving competition with our student carvers. As well as watching the historic craft skills of wood and stone carving in action, you’ll be able to have a go at stone carving yourself on Saturday (11:00-13:00 & 14:00-15:00).

On Saturday 14 May (14:00-15:00), you’re invited to join a free Talk and Tasting with Fabal Lager in our Courtyard and refreshments will be available in our café throughout the event.
