Exciting new additions to Handmade Chelsea this year include on stage exhibitor demonstrations and a dedicated Christmas area, in addition to collections showcased in a range of disciplines by over 100 exhibitors at Chelsea Old Town Hall.
Handmade in Britain announces the 13th edition of Handmade Chelsea with a celebration of contemporary craft and design at iconic London venue Chelsea Old Town Hall and style retail destination, King’s Road London. Handmade Chelsea offers the opportunity to discover, commission and buy exceptional handmade work from selected designer-makers. The three-day retail fair from the Handmade in Britain team brings together an impressive roster of over 100 makers in a range of disciplines. This year exhibitors showcase work in a range of disciplines from fashion and textiles, jewellery, sculpture, ceramics, mixed media, art, furniture and glass. For the 13th edition, exhibitors will be providing demonstrations on stage and a dedicated Christmas area featuring seasonal gifts and artisan food. Work by Handmade in Britain exhibitors is featured in UK and international collections and Handmade Chelsea is a flagship event for new and established master craftspeople to showcase their work.
New for 2019
This year Handmade Chelsea incorporates a new Christmas area. This will include luxury artisan food for Christmas gifts as well as pieces with a seasonal theme. On stage there will be a dedicated area where makers will demonstrate the art of making in and some exhibitors will be demonstrating at their stand throughout the fair. Creative Director Piyush Suri, seen most recently alongside Kirstie Allsop judging famous faces who were set the challenge to learn a new crafting skill on Channel 4’s popular daytime series, Kirstie’s Celebrity Craft Masters, says: “This year’s 13th edition is a hugely thrilling event, embodying the exceptional entrepreneurial spirit of London, where international designers meet home-grown talent to showcase the most exciting makers in contemporary craft and design. With exhibitors in furniture, fashion, textiles, glass, sculpture and jewellery, this is a fresh approach to contemporary craft and design and a great place to check off your Christmas gift list. Introducing new elements to the fair in the demonstrations area and a dedicated seasonal space brings a new energy to our much-loved Chelsea fair.”
