The showcase brings together designer-makers that have been part of the Walpole British Luxury through the Crafted mentoring programme. The showcase is free to attend, telling the story behind each stage of the craft-making creative process, from raw material to finished work.

The focus of the showcase will be on both the people and the products, with live demonstrations and chances to meet the makers.

Crafted: Makers of the Exceptional showcase can be found at The Royal Academy of Arts, Burlington Gardens, running from April 3 to April 5.
