What are your favorite spring craft fairs? The best place to get some fresh air and find a gift for that new graduate or summer birthday? There are a couple coming up that I’m really excited about (spoiler alert: they’re Guild shows!). Leave a link in your comment to your favorites, and make me crazy jealous!
May 1 & 2, Haverford chapter’s annual fair
The Haverford Guild of Craftsmen Spring Show will showcase the work of over 30 artists in media such as jewelry, leather, ceramics, glass, fiber, photography, copper, painting, wood, illustration and mixed media. Several of the artists will be demonstrating their craft throughout the day on Saturday, and a raffle will grant unique items to lucky winners. The image above is a painting by Deena Ball, one of the exhibitors.

“There is a growing movement to buy handmade, and we are so excited to be an active participant!” says Executive Director, Brandi Clark. “Handmade craft is as unique as those that make it. We provide patrons with more than just a lovely object; we provide them the rich history behind each piece and a story to pass on. The Guild’s fine craft fairs allow people to connect with the makers as they find unique items of amazing quality to fill their lives. We are honored to help connect people with handmade items and to share the experience of craft with them.”
