Craft fair organiser and promotional body for British designer-makers, Handmade in Britain has announced an interactive virtual exhibition for its Handmade Oxford edition.
From 15-19 September, Handmade Oxford Online will feature some of the UK’s most talented contemporary craft makers. Visitors will be able to browse and shop through an extensive online catalogue of handmade products from a wide range of disciplines, including fashion and jewellery, glass and ceramics, prints and textiles, and sculpture and wood.
In addition, visitors can expect to indulge in a full programme of interactive and informative activities such as live Q&A sessions with the exhibitors, craft demonstration videos, and interactive craft workshops.
Handmade Oxford Online will be the third edition of the organiser’s interactive virtual craft fair series. Its previous virtual craft fairs have attracted over 30,000 unique visitors from 80 countries.
A Handmade in Britain spokesperson said: “As businesses and the public still face certain challenges and anxieties around in-person events, Handmade in Britain hopes the Virtual Craft Fair will provide independent designer-makers with the means to continue connecting safely and effectively with their customers.”
