Once again, Kew Gardens will play host to Handmade at Kew, the innovative, global craft fair where 150+ highly skilled international makers and galleries will showcase their ceramics, glass, furniture, textiles, metalwork and jewellery. Taking centre stage in the heart of the botanical gardens, this four day selling event, housed in an elegant pavilion next to Kew Palace, will offer visitors the unique opportunity to meet and buy one-off pieces directly from artists, makers and craftspeople and learn about the ideas and processes that shape their work.

Handmade at Kew takes place amongst Decimus Burton’s glasshouses, a feat of Victorian engineering and British craftsmanship. Your ticket will not only give you access to the event but also to the whole of Kew Gardens, allowing you to soak up the delights of the world’s most famous botanic garden with its fine glasshouses and rare blooms, while browsing, buying or commissioning work directly from internationally renowned craftspeople and artisans.
