Design Centre Stories

Made by Hand

Hands-on workshops at London Design Week 2018 offer the chance to get creative – and even be rewarded for your creativity. Perrin & Rowe’s new showroom features a ‘make a moodboard’ booth, stocked with samples of fabrics and materials plus inspirational tap images; the best-looking board wins a night in a London hotel. Or paint a tile at Artisans of Devizes, and have it sent away, fired and returned to you for posterity. At Black & Key, artist Fintan Whelan (pictured) led a session in which participants could make a piece of abstract art of their own. Julian Chichester hosted creativity sessions, with sketchbooks at the ready and lots of inspiration on hand all around the showroom.
