We are so excited to be part of this event in Nashville. Please check out their website and get all the info. I've been seeing the pictures of the work that is there and I can't wait to check it all out in person. There are so many truly talented artists out there and to get to meet them and see their work in person is such an honor.
"Crafty Bastards Arts & Crafts Fair is an exhibition and sale of handmade goods from independent artists that originated 13 years ago in Washington, D.C., presented by our sister publication, the Washington City Paper. Nashville Scene launched a version of the event in November 2014 as Crafts and Drafts, integrating a curated selection of beer for sale along with the handcrafted items, activities, entertainment and food truck fare. Following three successful iterations of Crafts and Drafts, Nashville Scene is relaunching the event in our market as Crafty Bastards, with artist submissions from a national level and relocating this outdoor event to The Gulch neighborhood on Saturday, November 5, 2016 from 10 AM - 4 PM. This is a FREE event!
Why are we doing it?
As Nashville’s premier alternative newsweekly, the Nashville Scene promotes underground art and strives to connect the voice and vision of independent artists with our readers. The festival creates an experience where consumers can discover unconventional, hard-to-find arts and crafts, meet the artists, and even make something themselves.
What kinds of crafts will I find?
You will find talented artists handpicked by a select jury for their DIY chops and singular vision. There'll be surprises at every booth including unique homegoods, clothing, punk-rock baby clothes, handcrafted jewelry, plush toys, DIY kits, screen-printing, original art, locally produced food, and much more."
Isn't their graphic fantastic?
I tried to share a link to the work for you to look at, but really...just look up crafty bastards on Facebook or even google it and you can see all the vendors. It will be a really fun time AND benefits Goodwill. If you come to it, please come say hi.
Thanks for reading and we'd love to see some of you at this show.
