About

London Design Festival 2011 heralds a fascinating and innovative exhibition from a dynamic group of seventeen craft makers who first met through the Crafts Council's Hothouse programme. Hand picked as some of the most promising emerging talents on the scene — working in jewellery, wood, textiles, basketry, ceramics and glass — Portraits in the Making will captivate audiences. This diverse collection of artists are held together by a core theme that draws from Sir John Soane's vision of Pitzhanger Manor as ‘a sort of portrait' — it was here that he displayed his collection of paintings, books, architectural drawings and fragments. Completed in 1804 as his weekend retreat and entertaining venue (now Grade 1 listed) Pitzhanger is a stunning example of the late Georgian style and acts as a fascinating backdrop for this exhibition, with work spanning from the PM Gallery into the house's beautifully appointed rooms.
