Handmade in Kew

The applications for Handmade at Kew and Handmade Chelsea 2018 are now open.

For the past decade, Handmade in Britain’s shows have become the top contemporary craft selling events in UK. The events showcase the best high-end design and craftsmanship from hundreds of highly skilled designer-makers. The events target and appeal to an informed and highly motivated audience of local and UK consumers, collectors and aficionados as well as a select audience of professionals; including those who represent corporate and public sector buyers. The consumer audience includes local residents; tourists; shoppers and craft/design collectors. Selected press, trade buyers, media and VIPs are also invited to attend.

With annual visitor figures exceeding 15,000 (and rising), Handmade in Britain events are, year-on-year, a highlight for UK designer-makers, collectors, industry professionals and design enthusiasts.

Applications are now being welcomed from individual makers, groups and galleries of contemporary craft working in the following disciplines: furniture, metal, ceramics, glass, jewellery, textiles, woodwork, paper and sculpture.
