Things To Do This Week In London: 14-20 May 2018
BREADBOARD MUSEUM: Here’s a niche museum experience if ever we did see one. Putney local Madeleine Neave runs The Antique Breadboard Museum out of her own reception room, and invites you to take a look at her collection while enjoying an English Cream Tea — served off your favourite breadboard, no less. The Antique Breadboard Museum (Putney), £20, book ahead, 2.30pm-4.30pm

Breadboard Museum needs carvers
The delightful Antique Breadboard Museum is looking for artists who work in wood to visit their museum, get inspired and join their list of carvers for commissions. They also have an exhibition in May in Putney, London, and are looking for demonstrators. You can get in touch through their website. They are a small, private museum where all the collection is accessible and can be handled. Their visitors can even eat off the pieces! Their website and wonderful collection is certainly worth a browse.
Their Conference was an impressive line-up of presenters, all supporting the crafts in different ways. Emma Bridgewater explained how she had revived part of the pottery industry in Stoke, and I thought what a brilliant thought if breadboard carving could be revived in Sheffield. The infrastructure is still all there and the skills.
