In celebration of a new decade, the British Craft Trade Fair (BCTF) has announced plans to open its doors to the public for one day only ahead of its April 5-7 run this year.
On Saturday April 4, 2020 visitors will be welcome to browse the British-made artisan products on offer at the Yorkshire Event Centre, Harrogate.
These include handmade ceramics, porcelain, fashion accessories, glass, metalwork, woodwork, textiles, greetings cards, fine art and, of course, jewellery.
David Hitchcock, of Surrey designer Photofinish Jewellery, will be at the event. He commented: “I’m excited to be showcasing at BCTF, the show which brings the best of British makers together under one roof.
British Craft Trade Fair organiser, Margeret Bunn, says: “We are delighted to welcome David to the exhibition for the first time this year. He is an exceptionally talented designer and one of many from the South of England who are participating in the show.
“There are many indications that people want to support more local, sustainable businesses and are seeking beautifully designed British products which they know are of sound provenance.
“Research is backed up by strong anecdotal feedback we are receiving from retailers visiting the show and followers on our social media sites. If ever there was a time to support our heritage industries and independent designer-makers, then this is it!”
