For over a decade, Handmade in Britain has been creating some of the UK’s finest contemporary craft and design events, from ceramics to textiles to jewellery and so much more.
We have just completed our third year of Handmade at Kew alongside a new show of ours; The Contemporary Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition Sculpt at Kew. This ran for four weeks, featuring sculptures by artists from the world and customers were able to purchase each sculpture. Both events took place at the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew and were a big success.
This year we also presented our second year of Handmade Edinburgh from 27 – 29 October and the 11th year of our longest running annual show, Handmade in Britain at Chelsea Old Town Hall from 10 – 12 November.
Handmade in Britain is excited to be expanding every year, so for 2018, we have announced our new show Handmade Oxford which will take place at Oxford Town Hall from 18 – 20 May, and in addition to this, we are now going online! Customers can go online to our website and purchase handmade products all year round any time of the day, whether it may be for themselves or a gift for others. Our online shop will be launching March 2018.
