Handmade in Britain

Curated and organised by Handmade in Britain since 2007 in the iconic Chelsea Old Town Hall, on Kings Road Handmade Chelsea is one of the most established and longest running event in the UK craft calendar, that celebrates the very best of British craftsmanship. We are excited to return to the heart of Kensington & Chelsea for the 15th Edition of Handmade Chelsea, The Contemporary Craft & Design Fair. Featuring the very best of over 100 UK-based Contemporary designer makers, both established and emerging, a vast range of disciplines will be represented from glass and ceramics, jewellery and fashion, prints and textiles, to sculpture and wood. This year, Handmade Chelsea will be celebrating fifteen years and will take place in the form of a dual-model. Those wishing to take part in our event will be able to do so both in-person at the beautiful Chelsea Old Town Hall and/or digitally through our dedicated online platform.

Thanks for putting on such a great show, it not only looked fantastic, but it was also really well curated, which really showed in the attendance and sales. Emily Thatcher, exhibitor 

Thank you all so much for all your hard work in putting on another great Handmade show. All my clients who came thought it was fab and bought from several other makers too which is great. Annie Ruthven Taggart, exhibitor

Thanks so much for all your hard work.  It was a really enjoyable show and considering the circumstances I think it was successful.  I met some wonderful people both other makers and new clients, had some good sales over the weekend and have had a really good follow on post show with orders and commissions.  It is always a joy to be with Handmade shows!
