Marin Arts & Crafts Show was established by artisans who were inspired by the Arts & Crafts Movement. It is an artisan collaborative that is devoted to the artistic forms and techniques of medieval art –luminous color, careful detail, romantic symbolism, devotion to nature, and the rejection of industrialism and mass-produced goods.
Celebrating the handcraft of design, it brings together the traditional techniques, natural colors and sustainable materials that give design its remarkable strength. Exhibitors are carefully-curated and chosen for their handcraft skills and rejection of mass-produced products. The products include textiles, stained glass, furniture, ceramics, metalwork, jewelry, recovered architectural objects, repurposed wood and iron, clothing, artifacts, estate finds, photography, paintings and sculpture.
The 3-day show encompasses all handcrafted media, including lapidary, jewel smithery, glass making, ceramics, glass lamp work, fashion design, weaving, hand tooled leather, handspun yarn, felting, natural-dyed fiber, beadmaking, gem cutting, metalwork, embroidery, hand sewn clothing, and wearable art.
Exhibitors are chosen for highly-skilled handwork and use of natural materials, and include both traditional and contemporary artisans and high-quality tradespeople. Many have spent over forty years reviving lost styles, and using traditional tools and techniques to produce graceful handwork, and one-of-a-kind artisan design.
Marin Arts & Crafts Show is open to the public, with no admission charge.
