2012 Highlights

 In November 2012, we returned to Chelsea Old Town Hall for our 6th year for Handmade in Britain 12: The Contemporary Crafts & Design Fair, which took place on 15th-18th November.

Supported by The Resident and Homes & Gardens, the fair was our biggest yet, with almost 100 designer makers beginning the Christmas Season in a stunning showcase of British craft & Design in the glorious surroundings of Chelsea Old Town Hall.

Feedback from our exhibitors was very positive and highly encouraging, particularly with regard to organisation, publicity and venue, and exhibitors and visitors alike were impressed with the high standard of work at the fair.

Overall, the total sales made in 2012 were an increase from sales made in 2011, which is excellent news and a positive indicator of the public interest in craft and design.

Over 85% of our exhibitors have possible or confirmed commission opportunities through Handmade in Britain 12, including interest from collectors and galleries, and over 65% have possible or confirmed trade opportunities, including opportunities with large, established retail brands.

Our visitor numbers for 2012 were a 32% increase on visitor numbers for 2011, and the feedback from visitors was overwhelmingly positive, particularly with regard to the standard of work and the variety of exhibitors.
