Handmade in Britain Book Launch

Sunday, 9 October 2011
The book is created to support the resurgence of interest in high quality, handmade British designs and crafts. It features 90 contemporary British designer- makers who represent some of the talented artists working in Britain today.
In these days of mass produced objects where people have become strangers to the process of making, it is comforting to know that there are still craftspeople working by hand and creating wonderful, unique products such as jewellery, ceramics, textiles, furniture and other crafts. Many draw their inspiration from nature and the world around them, each has a unique approach to their work and the area they have chosen to specialize in. - Piyush Suri
The launch of the book will coincide with the annual Show at Chelsea Old Town Hall in October with a private view evening of the selected designer-makers work on 27th October 2011.
