Made by Hand in Newport


Had another great day at Made by Hand! Today was really busy and, unlike other new fairs I’ve heard of, the good people of Wales do indeed know what contemporary craft is about, and they were ready to buy!

There are some fantastic makers here displaying glass, ceramics, textiles and all sorts of mixed media: Lowri Davies, Opi, Becky Adams, Potter Morgan Glass, Ellul Ceramics, and Sarah Malone to name just a few, plus of course great jewellers including Emily Nixon, Suzanne Potter, and Cindy Ashbridge.

Makers including Louise Hibbert and Wendy Lawrence are demonstrating their crafts and there are also some rather good food stands to keep us all going.

So – a good show? Yes, definitely one I’ll want to keep in my calendar.

If you haven’t already visited we’re open again tomorrow from 10am – 5pm, at Tredegar House, Newport. Highly recommended!
