Handm@de Winchester

Handmade WinchesterHandm@de came from the desire for individual designers, makers and artists to be seen by the wider buying public in an environment that best serves their work.

When people go food shopping they often look at where the vegetables were grown, where the chicken was raised, and now people are realising that they can do this with gifts, clothes, homewares etc by buying Handm@de.

Everything at Handm@de is exactly that, and by supporting Handm@de you are supporting local artists and crafters.

Handm@de came from a desire to be able to show off and sell the stall holders work to their customers in the flesh, as all have online shops, mostly via Etsy.com and Folksy.com.

Handm@de Winchester will be the third event in a historic city, after the success of Handm@de Oxford two more events were organised: Cambridge in April, and now it is the turn of Winchester.

The events all stick to the basics – they’re all in spectacular buildings in central locations – they’re all in cities that attract plenty of tourists as well as locals and students and, of course, they’re all being arranged out of the goodness of the organisers hearts since they won’t make a penny of profit!

So please support Handm@de Winchester!

On Sunday 5th July in Winchester Guildhall, opening hours 10.30 am to 4.30 pm

45 craft stalls featuring Stationery, Photography, Jewellery, Prints, Homewares, Paper Craft, Felted Crafts, Clothing, Greetings Cards, Knits, Original art, Bags and Purses, Ceramics, Softies, Crochet, Soaps and Bath Bombs.

The charity table is supporting the Naomi House Children’s Hospice charity.

Look forward to seeing you there!!
