About Handmade at Kew

This autumn, Handmade in Britain will be collaborating with Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to host an international craft event. You’ll be able to meet and buy from over 150 extraordinary designer-makers working across all disciplines including: ceramics, jewellery, fashion and textiles, glass, paper, furniture, metalwork, sculpture and interior accessories.

Over four days from Thursday 8 to Sunday 11 October, the picturesque gardens at Kew will showcase exceptional and innovative British and international craftsmanship, for both fashion and interiors, in a unique shopping experience.

Handmade at Kew is a very special chance to invest in beautiful, unique products at a show where you can buy, browse and commission directly from the maker; unearthing the stories, inspirations and processes behind the exquisite work of some of the world’s most talented craftspeople. Housed in an elegant pavilion next to Kew Palace, the unique outdoor format of the event will allow visitors to enjoy the Gardens and crafts to the full. One ticket allows access to the whole of Kew Gardens, so make a day of it and explore!

Champagne reception
Or, for a more luxurious experience, join us on 7 October at the private view champagne reception, where you'll be able to browse the crafts before they go on sale.
