Witness the transformative power of craft in this multi-layered exhibition showcasing the craftsmanship of 15 luxury maisons dedicated to making the finest watches, shoes, kimonos, jewellery, and much more. Observe master artisans at work in a series of intimate studio spaces inspired by Antonello da Messina’s painting of Saint Jerome in his Study. Beautifully crafted wall panels and tiled floors reflect the heritage of each craft and its tools, while a central museum space reveals Japan’s influence on European artisans. The craftsmanship of exhibition making will be demonstrated by students from City and Guilds of London Art School.
