KCWC Contemporary Art Group has been invited to a private tour of Artefact, a new craft fair launching at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, the world’s premier design destination. Artefact is both a marketplace and a celebration of contemporary craft, encouraging visitors to experience the tactility and joy that handmade objects can bring to their lives. The tour will include meeting the Artefact gallerists and viewing in person authentic work from established and emerging artists and makers, as well as an experiential feature in collaboration with The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST), supporting the training of talented aspiring craftspeople. Graduates of the 2019 Crafts Council Hothouse Programme will present Form Made From. Curated by Brian Kennedy, on show will be sculpture, furniture, textiles and ceramics dedicated to sustainable and repurposed materials, shapes and processes, from innovative British artists. This is a very special event on this year’s London art agenda, and one not to be missed!
After the guided highlights tour there will be ample time to wander the exhibiting galleries and Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour showrooms on one’s own, as well as the enjoy the on-site café for a break if you wish.
