Beautiful & Useful: Craft at the Garden Museum
Join us for Beautiful & Useful, an exciting one-day craft fair on Sunday 18th November 2018.
A carefully curated boutique show, Beautiful & Useful offers the chance to buy from some of Britain’s best designer-makers in the fields of ceramics, wood, willow, metalwork and more, and to find out about their work and practice.
Work on offer will include Hannah Bould’s hand-thrown black and white tableware; willow baskets, obelisks and screens from Jay Davey; Amy Isles Freeman’s vibrant hand-painted wooden bowls; Sue Binns’s distinctive blue and white stoneware; wooden spoons and chopping boards from Grain & Knot; delicate pressed flower cards from MR Studio London; and concrete pots and planters with provenance from Peckham makers From the Land.
With around 25 exhibitors in total, it’s the ideal opportunity to find that perfect Christmas present for a friend or loved one – or to treat yourself.
Beautiful & Useful is curated by Natasha Goodfellow, formerly deputy editor of Homes & Antiques magazine and manager of GROW London, the contemporary garden fair, now part of the House & Garden Festival.
Tickets cost £5 and include entrance to the museum’s collections (normally £10) as well as the Humphry Repton exhibition and the Dan Pearson-designed garden. The acclaimed Garden Café will also be open for lunch and refreshments, making this one of the most enjoyable pre-Christmas shopping experiences around.
