The House of Spectacles
Come and join us for an informal chat and Q&A about manufacturing eyewear in the UK and the development of our new business to business, Made to Measure service.
Natalie and Matthew will discuss their experience of designing and making eyewear in the UK. From their shop featuring on ‘’George Clarks amazing spaces’’ in 2014, to developing a bespoke frame service and then using that knowledge and experience to create the House of Spectacles Made to Measure.
Key topics will include:
The difficulties of developing skills/systems in an industry that is geared towards mass manufacture and does not have defined training opportunities.
Creative thinking around design, production and targeting a niche market.
Combining traditional techniques with modern computer aided design and CNC systems to create an agile and customisable manufacturing process.
The benefits of producing small runs of frames right here in the UK and their expectations and plans for future collaborations.
