Join us at the V&A for a discussion on the state of British Craft today, led by QEST Ambassador Dr Jonathan Foyle.
We often pay a premium for hand-made objects that combine utility with beauty: they seem to have ‘soul’. But who is behind their design and manufacture?
Architectural historian, broadcaster and advocate for heritage sites Dr Foyle, who has penned the ‘Artisans’ feature for the Financial Times Weekend over the last six years, will be talking to a panel of QEST craftspeople to reveal their stories, inspirations and what makes them leading craft practitioners.
Date: Thursday 24 September
Timings: 7.00 to 8.45pm, including a wine reception. Doors open 6.30pm
Location: The Lydia & Manfred Gorvy Lecture Theatre, Victoria and Albert Museum, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 2RL
