Artisan Chelsea is back – returning again as part of London Craft Week from 08-14 May. Celebrating the craftsmanship and creativity from brands across the neighbourhood, including Anya Hindmarch, Emilia Wickstead and Sunspel, Artisan Chelsea is an unmissable moment for your diary.
Anya Hindmarch – Junior Apprentice Workshop
Inspire your little ones and nurture their creative talent with Anya Hindmarch’s junior embossing workshop at their Bespoke Store. Suitable for children aged 6-10, the interactive event features a presentation setting up the embossing machine, selecting the foil, setting the typeface and placing the motif on leather. Each child chooses a leather swatch from a huge selection of colours, a motif they would like to emboss and coloured foil. Anya’s leather expert will then emboss the personalised leather swatch along with the name of your child.
