For London Design Festival 2018, Tate Edit has invited six London-based makers to showcase their work for a special display and programme of events.
The ceramicists Ben Davies, Pip Hartle and Mizuyo Yamashita, the designer Tomoko Azumi, the jeweller SKD London, and the ceramicist and jeweller Sarah Perry, create beautiful work that is thought-provoking, functional and unique.
Tate Edit will showcase the work of each maker in a display for the duration of London Design Festival 2018. Places for the workshops are free and limited so we recommend booking a time slot. Please contact Tate Edit to book a place; firstname.lastname@example.org.
