AN EXHIBITION dedicated to Hermès' craftsmanship will open at London's Saatchi Gallery from May 21 to 27. A selection of 10 different crafts will be demonstrated live, as artisans show how they make the luxury products in their workshops in France.
The week-long Festival de Métiers exhibition is designed to "provide a fascinating insight into the traditions and values of Hermès in the crafting of fine objects," allowing the public to interact with the brand's craftspeople and see them at work. Visitors will be able to see the house's famed silk scarves being printed, as well as the creation of handbags, watches and fine-jewellery.
The exhibition was previously held in Beijing and Shenyang in China and, following its tenure in London, will move on to Dusseldorf. Admission to the Festival de Métiers at the Saatchi Gallery will be free of charge.
