We've often dreamt of visiting Hermès' workshops, and now we can thanks to Festival des Métiers arrival at London's Saatchi Gallery.
The week-long exhibition will allow visitors to witness the creation of some of the French brand's most iconic pieces, such as silk scarves, handbags, watches and fine jewellery.
The fashion house's skilled artisans will decamp from their Paris workshop to take up residency in the King's Road gallery from May 21-27, where they will go about their everyday tasks but in front of an audience. Visitors will be encouraged to interact with the craftspeople throughout the seven days in order to experience their unique savoir-faire first hand.
