Handmade in Britain / Bath

Today I had a lovely day sauntering around the streets of Bath with some friends, we went to the Handmade in Britain fair, bumbled around flea markets, haberdashery’s and charity shops and ate cookies, It was just peachy.

The Makery Emporium

Handmade in Britain was full of wonderful crafty designer makers, who were all so friendly, it was really interesting chatting to them about their inspirations and methods. Some of my favorites were:

Zoe Hillyard ~ Beautiful recycled silk and ceramic patchwork pieces that were truly original and encapsulated the ethos of craft and up-cycling perfectly.

Deryn Relph ~ Rainbow bright interior textiles that would uplift any room, I loved this chair:

Natalie Salisbury ~ Beautiful jewellery that embodied the intricacy of lace work, we were swooning over these rings for some time:

Emily Gliddon ~ Elegant, nostalgic jewellery with really interesting surface patterns,she also does jewellery making workshops in Bristol which I would love to do.

Helen Steel ~ Cheerful handmade textile home wears and gifts, I loved the printed tea towels and applique bird badges.

There were so many other inspiring exhibitors I definitely recommend a visit if you can tomorrow, see the Handmade In Britain Website for more information.
