About The Event
A PORTRAIT OF PLACE: THE NEW CRAFTSMEN AT HOLKHAM HALL
Earlier this year, The New Craftsmen invited six of its makers on a residency to the historic Holkham Hall on the north Norfolk coast to explore and creatively respond to the rich narratives of history, culture and aesthetic style embedded in the estate. Over five days, the makers were inspired by Holkham’s cast of characters and experts, both past and present; its decorative upstairs; pared-back downstairs; the outhouses; surrounding 25,000 acres; its values and progressive outlook, and were commissioned by The New Craftsmen to interpret it through the medium of craft.The result will be an idiosyncratic collection of hand-crafted pieces - entitled ‘A Portrait of Place’ - that will be exhibited at Holkham Hall from 9th - 13th September before travelling down to London to The New Craftsmen showroom in Mayfair for London Design Festival and available to purchase online.
