For April saw the return of the Heal’s Modern Craft Market with this year’s focus firmly on the big smoke and the makers who are making a name for themselves in the capital. For four weeks our Made in London exhibition showcased some of the city’s most exciting craft talent with a jam-packed schedule of parties, demos and hands-on workshops from those involved.
