A jam-packed programme means there’s something for everyone at Made by Hand this March. For children, there are two free workshops where little ones can create gorgeous paper flowers, a beautiful bird box as well as some lovely gifts for Mother’s Day.
Adults will be spoilt for choice with workshops covering modern calligraphy, beads and charm bracelet making, textile printing and porcelain workshops too. Spread across the three days, the workshops all cost £20 including materials and must be booked in advance.
Celebrating the very best in the craft business, Made by Hand will be bursting at the seams with beautiful bespoke items to pick up, gifts galore and a whole host of inspirational ideas to get you crafting.
Exhibitors over the weekend will have everything from furniture and wood to ceramics and glass. Featuring some of the biggest names in the craft industry, last year’s event was a huge success and 2019 is set to be bigger than ever.
Inspiring budding crafters, the festival will feature demonstrations from talented crafters. Demonstrations include leather bag making, chunky knits with giant needles, intricate papercuts, ceramics and silverware.
