The New Craftsmen will invite three prestigious interior designer studios - Maria Speake, Founder of Retrouvius; Emma Burns, Senior Design Director at Sibyl Colefax & John Fowler; and Sasha von Meister and Tom Bartlett, Directors of Waldo Works - to explore the different ways they view and value craft.

RE-USE IN ACTION: HANDLESShare +
Our handles are a good quality material - often in brass and other metals.
We have hundreds of them in our Kensal Green warehouse and we invite rummaging.
They are easy to screw into joinery. Use bigger handles for bin drawers and dishwashers which require more grip - tea towels can happily loop through when not in use.
Heavier use cupboards and drawers like those for pots and saucepans also require a heftier handle.
Our handles can be used on two different axis. As door handles they are the easiest way of updating existing elements, like buttons on a shirt.
As drawer pulls the huge variety of sizes and styles revive old cupboard fronts or bring character and patina to new joinery.
Metal handles are easy to clean and good to the touch.
In bathrooms and loos where space is often at a premium a single handle provides a home for a hand towel.
