It was a good show and well worth visiting. Excellent work from a range of disciplines including ceramics. Ceramicists included: 

Handmade team comment:

Following on from last year’s successful inaugural event, we returned to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew for the second edition of the four day craft spectacular, Handmade at Kew!

Housed in an elegant outdoor pavilion next to the picturesque Kew Palace, the spectacular Kew Gardens played host to this innovative, global craft fair in our most ambitious event to date. With innovative design alongside exceptional craftsmanship, visitors enjoyed an impressive variety of form, function and style from over 200 international makers.

Handmade at Kew grew this year with over 200 UK and international makers exhibiting an exceptional standard and variety of work from Columbia to Germany. Disciplines showcased included glass, ceramics, jewellery, furniture, fashion accessories, sculptures and home textiles.

A  number of groups and galleries took part in the event including Gallery Top and Inspired 2016 both of whom brought varied collections of beautiful contemporary pieces across all disciplines. Organisations Design Factory and Craft Central also showcased a smorgasbord of contemporary craft and design from a range of well-known names. Arts Thread returned to curate an Emerging Talents showcase of some of the brightest new graduate talent in contemporary craft and design and there were live demonstrations of contemporary craft practices from In The Window throughout the event.

We found some excellent work, the displays were well laid out, all in all a show worth a visit next time (Pity Kew Gardens made what appears to be a late change and made us walk ‘all round the houses’ to get in on the preview evening!)
