Craft + Design Show

Now in its 52nd year, Craft + Design is an intimate, museum-quality show that has garnered national accolades and a reputation for showcasing the finest in contemporary crafts. Last year more than 2,400 people visited the booths of almost 60 exhibitors. Awards are presented in ceramics, precious metals, glass, wood and recycled materials, contemporary design, innovative use of traditional craft materials and fiber. Last year’s Elisabeth Scott Bocock Best in Show Award went to chairmaker Joe Graham. (I was the winner of the Innovative use of traditional craft materials award!)
