Handmade for Christmas
2022 Makers Call Out
Held at the Millennium Gallery, Handmade for Christmas is Sheffield Museums’ annual selling showcase celebrating the breadth of British contemporary craft. The show, which focuses on selling high quality craft and design by talented designer-makers, is open from 21 October to 24 December 2022. The festive season is the Millennium Gallery’s busiest retail period – Handmade for Christmas regularly attracts over 35,000 visitors.
This year, Handmade for Christmas will include ceramics, glass, jewellery, metalwork, papercraft textiles & wood, and span handcrafted product ranges either one-off pieces or small-scale productions, with works available at a variety of price points. All work featured in the showcase is included on a sale or return basis.
Applications to be part of Handmade for Christmas are open to UK-based craftspeople or designer-makers. We are particularly looking for makers based within a 100 mile radius of Sheffield who produce high quality, innovative, contemporary work.
As well as providing a platform for work by independent artists, makers and craftspeople, Handmade for Christmas also raises vital funds to support Sheffield Museums’ work as a charity, ensuring the city’s museums and galleries are free and open for everyone to enjoy.
