London Design Festival: Greenwich Artists and Makers
September 14 @ 10:00 am - September 22 @ 5:00 pm BSTFree
London Design Festival returns to the capital for its 17th year this September and we’re proud to be joining this inspiring programme for the first time.
Throughout London Design Festival 2019, we will be hosting a free exhibition of local Greenwich, Woolwich and Deptford artists and makers.
The free drop-in exhibition in the Visitor Centre Mezzanine includes A Walk by the River by printmaker Kethi Copeland, a set of prints exploring elemental themes by artist and architectural designer Charles Chambers, jewellery by Sophie Martin-Glinel and a selection of limited edition prints from Woolwich Contemporary Editions.
Inside the Painted Hall (open to ticket-holders) works include The Storytelling Chair made by Matt Nicholls Designs from recycled wood in the Victorian Skittle Alley, itself made from upcycled ships, as well as fascinating 3D scans of the Painted Hall by Simon Withers, showing the labour and care that went into creating the room in the 18th century, and the 21st century conservation efforts and handcrafted textiles by knitted textile designer Olivia J Holland.
