The Handmade Festival began five years ago as The Handmade Fair. As the enthusiasm and passion from our visitors, makers and experts has grown, so have we. For 2019 we have relaunched as the Handmade Festival to bring you an inspiring collection of creative people, skilled makers and a celebration of handmade.
Whether you want to learn a new skill in one of our workshops or have a great day out shopping from over 200 designer makers the Festival is a fantastic event for all. We champion handmade and hand-pick the individuals who come to showcase their incredible products. What's more, we encourage everyone to get hands-on and learn new skills across our creative pillars.
