Handmade in Britain was started in 2007 because of the limited opportunities available for British designer-makers and craftspeople to promote and sell their work in the UK market. What began as a small contemporary craft fair in Chelsea Old Town Hall, has now grown into a well-known brand in the UK craft sector.
Over the years, we have curated over 25 fairs and we’ve been able to collaborate with world-renowned organisations such as the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and Waterperry Gardens, creating shows and providing a platform to promote the work of talented makers, designers and craftspeople whilst engaging new audiences.
Workshops and business mentoring are also key to our mission to support the designer-maker communities.
Recently, we diversified our business and launched a highly curated e-commerce platform. Our focus is now to introduce new technologies and create exceptional digital experiences for our customers.
With a passion for the handmade, the support and promotion of British craft and design remains central to our priorities for the future.
We pride ourselves on supporting small creative businesses, increasing accessibility and creating new market opportunities for craft practitioners.
