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 in October 2018.

Taking centre stage in the heart of the Gardens, this four-day event saw over 150 international and UK-based contemporary artists showcasing gorgeous textiles, jewellery, ceramics, glass, furniture and more. Makers were on hand throughout the fair to talk about the ideas and processes that shape their work. Tickets included access to the whole of Kew Gardens, allowing visitors to enjoy its beautiful glasshouses and stunning blooms, while browsing, buying or commissioning work directly from internationally renowned craftspeople.
