Launched in 2013, By Hand was established to showcase the work of talented local designer-makers. The ground floor shop area features work by selected craftspeople and includes jewellery, ceramics and textiles. Works are available to purchase and take away on the day.

Our first floor By Hand print and card shop showcases work by local independent makers. Works are affordable, high-quality and contemporary.

With work refreshed every six months, there is a changing range of items available from a selection of makers.

If you are a local designer, or know someone who would be interested in selling their work through By Hand you can complete an application form below. Artists are selected on a six-monthly basis.
