Burberry Makers House 2017

Inspiration and Process

A cultural overview of current and upcoming happenings & must-sees, giving an insight in the YS weekly inspirations!


This week the YS team visited the 2017 Makers House by Burberry in collaboration with the Henry Moore Foundation. 



Burberry is known for celebrating British talent and pays tribute to some of the nation's greatest creatives. This year's Burberry Makers house 2017 puts never-before-seen pieces by Henry Moore on display. Henry Moore has always inspired Christopher Bailey, the chief creative and executive offer of Burberry. Growing up in Yorkshire, Bailey would often visit the nearby Henry Moore sculpture park. 

 "It was the most magnificent space filled with different sculptures, and Henry Moore was a dominant figure amongst them. As I was working on this collection, I started to explore more sculptural shapes, which just immediately took me to my childhood passion." - Christopher Bailey



Inspiring this years collecting through its shapes, forms and constructions, Makers house also includes an exhibition of Henry Moore's work over two floors, including 40 sculptures and private works, sketchbooks, maquettes and more. 

The Burberry Makers house will also include various workshops, events, printmaking demonstrations. It will run from February 21 to 27.   For more information visit the website here.
