New Makers

At the core of The Handmade Festival is a desire to champion designer makers and creative people. We see our event as a platform for the community and a way for designer makers to inspire new audiences.

New Makers is open for creative businesses that have been trading for one year or less at the time of The Handmade Festival.

2019 saw the first year of our New Makers program - we had over 70 talented businesses apply that were shortlisted by Kirstie Allsopp and we welcomed 20 of the makers to our event at Hampton Court!
