Date for the Diary - Handmade at Kew

Following on from last year’s success, Handmade in Britain is returning to the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, for the second edition of the four day craft spectacular, Handmade at Kew.

Once again, Kew Gardens will play host to this innovative, global craft fair where more than 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, is to be housed in an elegant pavilion next to Kew Palace, and 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.

In fact it's set to become London’s leading international craft event, and the venue couldn't be more beautiful. Your ticket to the event will not only give you access to the show 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.

It’s a fabulous day out for the whole family and a rare opportunity to indulge in heritage, horticulture and shopping, all on the same day, in the same place. With tickets giving you access to the whole of Kew, in all its autumn splendour we might add, take your family and friends and make a day of it. Besides, Christmas isn't far away.
