Handmade Market – Kenilworth

I spent Saturday having a lovely time at the Handmade Market in the gorgeous castle town of Kenilworth.

It’s a brand new venture set up by Amy (of Amos Denton Designs) and Julia (of Bodkin and Bead) who recognised (and quite rightly too) that there’s not a whole lot going in in the Warwickshire craft world. Some new markets have sprung up in the Midlands in the last few years and it’s really encourging to see that they’re being well recieved.

This weekends market was the first and I was pleasantly suprised about how many people made the short walk out of the Town Centre to St Johns Church to visit. The market featured a small but really well balanced selection of makers including:

and me ... obviously

The markets will now be held monthly so do pop along on the 12th of March to have a look at who’s exhibiting then.
