Our next VIP event is a ‘fireside chat’ with Victoria Finlay, author of ‘Fabric: The Hidden History of the Material World.’ Victoria will be leading us through her emotional and historical journey to discover textiles in culture, politics and global events throughout time. Victoria will be discussing her book with Grace McCloud of Inigo and the Makers Tales Collective members in the beautiful setting of the new Edward Bulmer Showroom in Pimlico which is kindly hosting the Makers Tales Collective and guests for what promises to be a fascinating evening.
The Makers Tales Collective was thrilled to be part of the London Craft Week 2021 series of events, with a lively discussion led by Grace McCloud (former Editorial Manager/Inspiration Editor The World of Interiors) exploring the human element of the making process and how it embraces beauty through imperfection. The Makers Tales Collective celebrates the stories behind each of its member’s artisan designs for interiors, revealing how the spirit of encouragement and collaboration runs through every textile, sculpture and paper creation.
For this one-off event, the Collective explored these stories alongside the theme of imperfection, beauty and the value of the handmade, using images and videos to add depth to the discussion.
