Made by Hand
We all want to connect the jewelry that touches our heart with the hands of the artisan who made it. Feel the time-worn grooves of a workbench. Observe nimble fingers magically transform metal into an art piece.
This is “Made by Hand”, a journey into the artisanal soul of London. In order to truly explore the concept of “Made by Hand” in the best possible manner, Rue Pigalle has partnered with London Craft Week for an exceptional week-long discovery program of workshops, lectures, gallery visits and exclusive events in one of the world’s most beautiful cities.
We’ll meet virtuoso artists in their sacred spaces and learn what makes them tick, get lost in a hive of studios that buzzes with creativity, poke about in vibrant markets, and be treated to privileged ‘behind-the-curtain’ tours of major art institutions.
From the traditional to the quirky to the jaw-droppingly cool, we will explore every conceivable facet of the life of the artisan—the importance of made by hand, the practice of made by hand, the intellectual side of made by hand.
Think London, think galleries, restaurants, shopping, celebrated masters and famous studios every day.
