Handmade for Christmas

Handmade for Christmas © Museums Sheffield
Friday 30 October 2015 - Sunday 10 January 2016

When something is made by hand, you know it’s been crafted with love by someone who cares. Because a gift should be special, everything on sale in our Christmas show is handmade in the UK.

Created by artists and designers in workshops and studios throughout Britain, the work on show has been crafted by makers marrying traditional skills and techniques with innovative, contemporary approaches. Choose from beautiful jewellery, stylish glassware, ceramics, prints and much more for an inspired alternative to the High Street.

As well as supporting independent makers across the region and further afield, income generated through Handmade for Christmas will help to fund Museums Sheffield’s programme of exhibitions and events throughout the city’s museums and galleries.

We've had a great visitor response to this year's showcase:

"Fabulous collection of beautiful work."

"Fabulous gifts and talented artists. I’ll be back!"

"Fantastic collection of talented makers and artists."

"Best craft selection in the whole city!"

You’ll find lots more gift ideas in our online shop
