DESIGN DIRECT AT CENTRAL
June 27-30; Craft Central, 33-35 St John’s Square, EC1 (designnation.co.uk) DESIGN-NATION and Design Factory, members-only “networks” that support designers, promote their work and share expertise and exhibitions, are coming together for a summer pop-up in the heart of Clerkenwell, with original ceramics, glass, textiles, fashion accessories, gifts and more. Chat to the makers — and maybe discuss a commission.
We love this vase, left, by Linda Bloomfield (stoneware from £8), and silk scarf by KathKath Studio (sale scarves from £50). See also Ekta Kaul’s embroidery/appliqué, Melanie Porter’s chunky knitted furnishings and Snowden Flood’s prints and glass.
