Handmade in Britain was established in 2007 to provide a platform to support and promote design and craft talent through fairs, events and pop-ups. Starting with an autumn fair in Chelsea Old Town Hall, we have presented contemporary arts events in collaboration with well-known organisations such as Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew (Handmade at Kew) and Royal Botanic Garden Edinburgh (Handmade Edinburgh).

In 2019, we are pleased to be collaborating with Waterperry Gardens to create a new show, Handmade Oxford, building on the legacy of Art in Action, which successfully ran for 40 years. Handmade in Britain will also be returning to Chelsea Old Town Hall this November with over 100 designers showcasing their latest work.

“This is the go-to gift emporium. Meet 100 British designer-makers, happy to explain their art or craft, to sell on the spot or take special orders.” Barbara Chandler, Evening Standard, Handmade in Britain VIP guest

“It was a superbly high standard and well organised fair set in a beautiful location, the marquee was immaculate as was the shell scheme/carpet etc. The fair was very well publicised and therefore extremely busy throughout the four days” Sam Pickard, Handmade at Kew exhibitor

“The Handmade in Britain team are supportive and encouraging for new and old exhibitors. Their events attract high quality customers who believe in unique products and the stories behind them.” StephieAnn Design, Handmade at Kew exhibitor

“Handmade Edinburgh looked fabulous set up. There was plenty of footfall throughout the show and I had a great time talking to visitors and my fellow exhibitors… Handmade Edinburgh has been the best show for me this year!” Lisa Watson, Handmade Edinburgh exhibitor
