Handmade in Britain

2024 Fair

 

Handmade Chelsea show is one of a kind. A fantastic setting in such a busy and popular location in London, attracting buyers for all different craft disciplines. Its long and well established reputation draws in repeat customers every year as well as attracting new visitors. As a maker who has exhibited for 16 years, it is fabulous and friendly show to take part in, a highlight of my working calendar.” – Annie Ruthven-Taggart, Exhibitor 2023

We are pleased to announce that the 17th edition of HANDMADE CHELSEA at the iconic Chelsea Old Town Hall, London will have a fresh approach, new layout and new opening days.
