American Craft Week
This year's American Craft Week celebration, to be held October 7-16, will bring together individuals, small businesses and organizations from all fifty states in recognition of the countless ways handmade objects enrich our daily lives and contribute to our national aesthetic and economy.
In this age where mass production seems to rule, it is even more important to honor the art of crafting. While other industry associations have long touted their products, the craft industry has lacked a single way to be highly visible. So we ask you to join us in publicizing, educating and displaying American Craft for ten days each October. Join the national celebration of American Craft!
From fiber and glass, metal and wood, clay and paper, creative hands have interpreted their world. At the final weekend of this celebration, we invite you to explore the infinite world of craft.
