During Clerkenwell Design Week we’re relocating the studio and tufting frame to the Craft Central Gallery, in order to share the fascinating technique of hand tufting. We’ll be running live demonstrations which will  give a real insight in to how our rugs are made.

Hot off the press will be our latest printed flat woven rugs which will be shown alongside new additions to the Helen Yardley collection.

We have been making our rugs, runners, carpets and wall hangings in Britain for over 25 years. Our Bermondsey showroom and design studio, just minutes from London Bridge and in the shadow of the Shard, works alongside the production unit where prototypes and new designs are created. Whether you are looking to buy off the peg, commission a unique piece, or customise one of our existing designs, we are committed to providing something beautifully crafted and timeless.

STUDIO KLUBO: This is how we do it

Date: 13 June 2016 to 19 June 2016
Opening Times: Mon 12:30-6pm; Tue 11am-8:30pm; Wed-Fri 11am-6:30pm; Sat 11am-5pm; Sun 12pm-4pm
Location: The Gallery, Craft Central, 33-35 St John's Square, Clerkenwell , London, EC1M 4DS

Open for one week of June in the heart of Clerkenwell, London.  London based designers Georgia
Bosson, Cecily Vessey and Alice Tams will take over the Craft Central gallery, transforming it into a portable artists studio cum design-led shop.

They will have a selection of their products available to buy, as well as examples of their studio spaces, works in progress
and live demonstrations of their respective crafts throughout the week. You will be able to browse Georgia Bosson's colourful, contemporary home wares & fabrics, Cecily Vessey's architectural drawings and iconic London skyline ceramics and Alice Tams’s quirky ‘Birds in Hats’ illustrated prints and stationery. All three artists will launch previously unseen works exclusive to the gallery.

The three designers that make up ‘Studio Klubo’ are brought together by a passion for quality, art-led products and an emphasis on ethical, UK based making. ‘STUDIO KLUBO: This is how we do it’ will go beyond the simple pop-up format and aim to demonstrate the creative processes behind a finished product, from conception to completion.

The space will be hosted by the artists themselves for the entire week. This grants buyers the unique opportunity to purchase directly from the maker, witness works in progress take shape and truly understand the journey a product takes before it falls into their hands.
