Breakthrough jewellery artists Tatty Devine are celebrating 20 years in July and the two founding designers, Harriet Vine and Rosie Wolfenden will be in conversation talking about how they built an international British design and business, rooted in friendship and grit.
Natalie Melton, Creative Director of the Crafts Council, will host the discussion that explores entrepreneurship, innovative British making and the power of creativity.
Founders and friends Harriet and Rosie met at Chelsea College of Art and founded Tatty Devine when they graduated in 1999. They were pioneers of laser cutting to jewellery and they’ve built a reputation for creative and witty work.
Their story – from an East London market stall to international recognition – is an inspiring tale of entrepreneurship, inventiveness, dogged determination, campaigning, glamour, humour and, of course, artistic talent and flair. Over the past 20 years they’ve produced collections that have marked the centenary of the women’s vote and they’re active in promoting arts education.
There will also be an exclusive preview of their 20th anniversary exhibition: Misshapes: The Making of Tatty Devine.
Misshapes: the making of Tatty Devine, is a Crafts Council touring exhibition that looks at the duo’s remarkable story as they celebrate their 20th anniversary. Misshapes launches at the Lethaby Gallery in Central Saint Martin’s in London’s from 20 July – 11 August 2019 before a nationwide tour.
