Learning with Tom Davies

British eyewear brand launches ‘A day with Tom’

Tom Davies

British eyewear brand TD Tom Davies has launched a series of international workshops that will offer customers the opportunity to learn more about eyewear design.

The first ‘A day with Tom’ workshop is being held at the company’s Brentford-based manufacturing facility today (9 March).

Mr Davies will travel across Europe during 2018 to host the one-day workshops with a range of the company’s customers. 

Around 20 customers attended the first workshop hosted by the founder and frame designer. 

During the workshops, practitioners have the opportunity to learn about how the raw materials that are used in TD Tom Davies frames are produced and how the glasses are designed. 

They will be able to design their own bespoke frame and watch it go through each stage of the manufacturing process, from design, production and ready-to-wear.

Mr Davies will also give practitioners a masterclass in bespoke eyewear.
