Histon Handmade

Contemporary craft and design fair featuring 23 local artists and makers.

  • 25th November 2023 - 25th November 2023
  • 12:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Histon Handmade is looking forward to its seventh event on Saturday 25th November with another exceptional line up of 23 leading local designers/makers. Doors will be open from 12pm to 7pm.

Histon Handmade was established by jeweller Claire Howieson in 2016. Every event has proven extremely popular, both with visitors and exhibitors. Demand for places to exhibit with Histon Handmade is extremely high, but the exhibitors are all carefully selected by invitation, ensuring only the highest quality of work is on show.  There will be many familiar faces at the next event, but exhibitors are mixed up and new ones (always local) introduced as each event is designed to be unique.

Alongside jewellery from founder Claire Howieson, the event will showcase prints and cards from Sarah Vigliotti, ceramics by Daniela Stief, Menna Edwards (AKA Cleiog Ceramics), Amanda MacPhail and Sarah Went, glass by Jutta Robinson, Sam Rogers and Katie Lynn (AKA Molten Wonky), embroidered cushions and textiles from Anna Osborne, handwoven scarves and shawls from Nikki Grant, books from children’s illustrator Nicola Killen, hand written calligraphy cards and gifts from Twyla Holland (AKA The Cambridge Quill), handwoven baskets and decorations from Nadine Anderson, paintings and illustrations from Roxana de Rond, Helena Perry and Sue Smith, handmade hats by Sally Wilding (AKA Hedkase), handmade books from Helen Perry, and jewellery by Abi Cochran and Melinda LLewdib (AKA Kittiwake Jewellery). And the hugely popular Ely Grazing Company who debuted with Histon Handmade last year will be back again with their tasty treats.

We are also excited to have with us for the first time printmaker Judith Handley and wordworker and turner Ben Bannister.
