Handmade Edinburgh

Thank you for joining Handmade in Britain at Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh.

Thank you to everyone who visited, supported and took part in Handmade Edinburgh – The International Craft and Design Fair in August 2018.

Taking place at Scotland’s renowned Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh from Friday 10 – Sunday 12 August, the event became a unique addition to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Celebrating the best in high-end design and craftsmanship, Handmade Edinburgh presented a fabulous opportunity to shop for gorgeous textiles, jewellery, ceramics, glass and more, in an extraordinary and picturesque setting. Over 70 British and international designer-makers showcased their work inside an elegant purpose-built marquee in front of Inverleith House, allowing you can enjoy the delights of the beautiful botanic gardens and discover some of the world’s most talented craftspeople all in one visit.

With makers available throughout the event, Handmade Edinburgh offered the chance to unearth the stories, inspirations and processes behind the work, discuss bespoke commissions and see their latest collections up close.

Handmade in Britain will return to Edinburgh in August 2020 with an even bigger and better show, with further details due to be released in 2019. Be the first to hear more and find out about upcoming Handmade in Britain events by joining our mailing list.
