Hole & Corner
and The New Craftsmen
An evening with Pedro da Costa Felgueiras and Chris King
Thanks to all those who came to our intimate joint reception with our friends at The New Craftsmen at their stunning Mayfair venue The Garage, which showcases the works of contemporary independent craftspeople from all over the UK, from potters to weavers and silversmiths. Pedro da Costa Felgueiras gave us a live demonstration of the ancient arts of lacquer and pigment mixing, while bespoke cricket-bat maker Chris King brought along examples of his work – including an exclusive public outing of the prototype for his new design, the Nemesis. Look out for more events at The Garage soon – including a furniture painting workshop with artist Sophie Coryndon for the London Design Festival in September, in collaboration with the Charleston Trust. The workshop coincides with the centenary of the Omega Workshops, the avant-garde furniture, homeward and interiors collective made up of members of the Bloomsbury Group.
