Handmade Oxford

We would like to welcome you to the first edition of Handmade Oxford, the contemporary craft and design fair at the elegant and historic Oxford Town Hall.

For over a decade, Handmade in Britain’s shows have become the top contemporary craft selling events for designer-makers in the UK. This three-day showcase sees the industry’s biggest talents exhibiting alongside new graduates and emerging designer-makers. With innovative design alongside truly exceptional craftsmanship, you will be treated to a unique event, in the beautiful setting of Oxford Town Hall. Located in the centre of this ancient city, Oxford Town Hall is the centre of local government and houses the Museum of Oxford.

Bringing together the most exciting contemporary designer-makers from the UK and beyond, Handmade Oxford is a fabulous opportunity to shop for gorgeous textiles, jewellery, ceramics, glass, furniture and more! Makers will be on hand throughout the weekend to talk about their work and showcase their collections.
