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 are re-launching as the Handmade Festival and bringing you an inspiring collection of creative people, skilled makers and a vast array of what is celebrated as handmade.  Whether you wish 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 day out 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.
