    Over the past few months we have been working really hard here at Handmade in Britain, and as the spring approaches we are getting more and more excited about our brand new show; Handmade Oxford

    We have some really amazing creators exhibiting at this show, who have handpicked and tailored their work for the S/S 18 top trends. They shall be showing at Handmade Oxford from 18 – 20 May 2018. Here’s a teaser into what you can expect…

    Stand out from the crowd with this statement necklace by Ulli Kaiser, or be the hostess with the mostess with Aline Johnson’s glassware.

    This S/S 18 is also about embracing those softer hues of coral and aqua, as can be seen in Piccolpasso’s stunning tiles. Use the whole range on your walls for a total make over, or just a couple as statement pieces.

    Make any outfit iconic with Helen Chatterton location scarves. The detail and quality of silk is second to none, and are a must have for this season.

    To view these artist’s work, and so many other talented makers visit our website to get your tickets for the exquisite Handmade Oxford.

    Another successful night at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew! We began our third year of Handmade at Kew show with a VIP Private View launch event in the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. Each and every exhibitor was prepared for what was to come during the evening.

    There were about 200 exhibitors this year, with disciplines including jewellery, glass, furniture, ceramics, textiles and so much more. Every stand was unique and stood out in its own way for visitors to enjoy. The tickets included the whole of Gardens as well as access to Handmade at Kew.

    Yet again, Wild Island Botanic Gin and Fentimans came through with their delectable combination of gin & tonic or gin & rose lemonade, starting the evening refreshed and ready to start the show.

    Throughout the night, guests browsed the stands on offer, chatting to exhibitors and purchasing beautiful handmade products.

    Thank you to Farrow & Ball for their extraordinary botanical wallpaper, with intricate and colourful designs to brighten your day everyday.

    All night we heard wonderful comments about the show and the handcrafted designs and decors. Everyone made sure to check out every stand to take notice of everything and even purchase the pieces they loved the most.

    If you missed Handmade at Kew, make sure to check out Handmade at Edinburgh (27 – 29 October) or even Handmade in Britain at Chelsea Old Town Hall (10 – 12 November).

  • Opening Night of Sculpt at Kew

    Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, one of the most exotic gardens to hold the greatest collections of plants from around the world. Being able to present and sell our sculptures, which are created by many different artists, is a remarkable opportunity.

    We launched Sculpt at Kew with a private viewing of the exhibition. During the night, the guests were served complimentary Gin and Tonic by our wonderful sponsors Wild Island Botanic Gin and Fentimans. The drink was heavenly and helped start off a perfect evening.

    Incredible artists like Guy Portelli, Jilly Sutton, Marcia Raff, Andy Young and many more attended the opening night with their friends and families to view their own and other artist’s sculptures. During the evening, artists interacted with each other and with us to gain a wider perspective on each piece of art. Getting to know the background of the sculptures, gives you a better understanding of the meaning behind the work.

    As the artists, press and VIP guests had a tour around the gardens, a beautiful sunset arose behind the sculptures, showing them in a whole new light. Each sculpture captured the orange-red light in its own unique way, giving the guests a whole new reason to admire the work.

    We were delighted by the exceptional feedback from the guests during the evening. Many loved the setting of each sculpture around the gardens, as the incredible art blended with nature making the pieces look more natural and stunning.

    So, if you have the time this year until the 15th of October 2017, come along to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and view Sculpt at Kew, both indoors and outdoors. Why not even bring along your friends and family and make it a day trip to the Gardens. It’s a show worthy of being at the top of your to do list.
