This winter issue, we go RETRO. For some of us, it might mean 50’s fashion or flares and garish florals from the seventies. For others, it may even mean the Spice Girls….


With the current trend for all things vintage and Mid Century design making an impact on handmade and the High Street, we look at the pertinent issue of copyright and, in exclusive interviews, talk to designers and makers who reference the past to produce original and inspiring work in the present.


We also have retro-inspired goodies, tutorials, recipes and a bumper events round-up to help you celebrate the season in style.


Season’s Greetings from all of us at UKHandmade. See you in Spring!
