The American Craft Council’s seasonal online marketplace offers a connection to the type of giving that’s needed most for the end of a troubling year. Amid chaos, the simple joy that the handmade brings feels precious. Spending more time at home, we are more sensitive than ever to the goods that surround us. Giving handmade is a revolutionary act that lifts up a more mindful, creative economy and adds meaning to our lives – and you can find it at Craft Bash.
An extension of our annual, in-person event of the same name, Craft Bash 2020 will feature the handmade goods of 70 – 100 diverse artists from across the country. Visitors will be able to purchase their work via our online marketplace platform as well as connect to workshops and studio tours being held by the artists.
Part of ACC’s mission to support makers in their practice, Craft Bash simultaneously connects people to meaningful forms of giving and provides artists a venue to do business during a time when in-person marketplaces are not possible. By shopping this handmade marketplace, you’ll be making a difference in makers’ livelihoods and helping spread the joy of craft when it’s more relevant than ever.
