Handmade in Britain

Handmade at Kew

Thank you for joining Handmade in Britain at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Thank you to everyone who visited, supported and took part in Handmade at Kew – The International Contemporary Craft Fair from 2015 – 2018.

Taking centre stage in the heart of the gardens, the show welcome over 150 international and UK-based contemporary artists annually, showcasing gorgeous textiles, jewellery, ceramics, glass, furniture and more.

After careful consideration, and with a heavy heart, Handmade in Britain and Kew Gardens confirm that Handmade at Kew will not be going ahead in 2019. Whilst we have loved presenting Handmade at Kew for the past four years and appreciate the immense support we have received from visitors and exhibitors who participated in the event, the growth it requires to secure its long-term sustainability is unfortunately not possible.

We are however delighted to confirm that you can experience the same level of high-quality international and UK-based exhibitors at Handmade Oxford and on our online marketplace. Join our mailing list for updates.
