Over 80 British and international designer-makers will showcase their work in a purpose-build marquee in front of Inverleith House, with the show celebrating the best in high-end design and craftsmanship. Visitors will be able to shop for  handmade products that include gifts, jewellery, ceramics, wood and textiles.

With the makers available throughout the event, visitors will have the opportunity to hear about the stories, inspirations and processes behind the products on display, as well as to discuss bespoke commissions and to see the latest collections in detail. Workshops, talks and demonstrations will also be held. Visit handmadeinbritain.co.uk/edinburgh
