The Crafted City Pavilion

A pop-up space for learning, making and seeing at Contemporary Applied Arts

Many of the makerís involved have drawn inspiration from the rich history of craft and making in London across the centuries.  Southwark, for instance, was known for its tin-glazed earthenware pottery, hot glass blowing and printing: these and other crafts and disciplines will be represented in various ways in the pavilion.

Christine Lalumia, Executive Director of Contemporary Applied Arts has observed that ďOur maker members are using ancient skills, many of which are in danger of being lost forever, and interpreting them in their own unique voice and in contemporary idiom. The results are often both stunning and thought-provoking.Ē
