With the public’s appetite for all things Etsy as healthy as ever, Handmade Festival is one of a handful of events aiming to make a European DIY capital out of Barcelona.
Now in its second edition, the three-day festival will give you all you need to get crafting, cooking or creating. More than 250 exhibitors will fill sections dedicated to Paper, Thread, Cooking and Bric & Deco & Garden, in addition to a Mini festival for crafty kids and a Weddings section for those looking to add a personal touch to their big day.
As well as being a great chance to stock up on arts, crafts and cooking materials, the festival offers a huge selection of workshops where you can get inspired and try your hand at something new. Sign up online to activities such as mixing your own cocktails or crocheting a purse – though perhaps not in that order.
