Walpole’s Crafted: Makers of the Exceptional programme was founded in 2007 to enable small craft companies and artisans to develop their business skills. Alongside Patron Vacheron Constantin, the programme connects a new generation of skilled craftsmen with luxury brands, promoting the craft component of luxury in a contemporary and sustainable way. The programme provides mentoring and business advice for up to 12 carefully selected craft entrepreneurs each year, pairing them with expert mentors from the craft and luxury sectors and developing their skills through a series of workshops.
