2017 Craft + Design Show

  • Main Street Train Station Richmond, VA USA (map)

Now in its 53rd year, Craft + Design is a museum-quality show that has garnered national accolades and a reputation for showcasing the finest in contemporary crafts. Awards are presented in ceramics, contemporary design, fiber, glass, innovative use of traditional craft materials, precious metals, and wood and recycled materials. We also honor artists with the New Artist Award and the Best Booth Design Award. Last year’s Elisabeth Scott Bocock Best in Show Award went to glass artist Sean Donlon.

This year’s event will take place November 17-19, 2017 at Main Street Station’s newly renovated train shed.
