Walpole and Crafted 2012

Sophie was selected to take part in the 2012 Crafted Programme

Recognising that many luxury brands rely heavily on the work and experience of artists and craftmakers, Walpole developed the mentorship programme Crafted.

Established in 2007 Crafted’s aim has been to revive and reinvigorate the traditional art of craft skills and craftsmanship in the luxury industry. Crafted selects up to 12 exceptional craft businesses every year and through a programme of one to one mentorship and various workshops encourages them to promote and grow their businesses whilst connecting established luxury brands with the next generation of skilled craftsmen.
