Origin: The London Craft Fair
6 - 18 October 2009
Origin is no longer hosted at Somerset House, click here to visit the Origin website for more details.
Origin provided a unique opportunity to buy contemporary craft directly from 300 of the finest makers, with work ranging from functional tableware and sculptural glassware to classic knitwear and innovative jewellery and millinery.
A rich programme of activities highlighted the intricate discipline of contemporary basketry. Visitors were invited to engage with this craft form through a trail of specially commissioned work and within Crafting Space, an interactive area nestled in the heart of the fair.
Origin was presented by the Crafts Council at Somerset House. The Crafts Council is the national development agency for contemporary crafts.
