ATTENTION: Time's getting short...

American Craft Week Presents Metamorphosis
Repurposed, Recycled, Resourceful Craft

This is like 20 questions, only we don't have SO many questions … just these three:
Do you use recyled materials to create? Do you know some one who does? Do you collect the recycled works of artists and crafters?

If so check out our new competition to find 25 great craft artists... by June 22..that's FRIDAY, June 22. So hurry over to our website and enter yourself or nominate your favorite "recycler!" It's easy...just follow these rules:

We are looking for twenty-five exceptional craft artists who make their art out of recycled materials. We want to know what inspired you, the materials you use, your process, and of course, the end result, your creations.

The national American Craft Week Committee will judge the entries on the following criteria:
1. An impressive body of work demonstrating excellence in design and skill level.
2. The extent to which the original materials were transformed into new art.
3. How much of the art is made from recycled materials.
4. The quality and craftsmanship of the art.
5. Where the general public can see and/or purchase your art.

Entries accepted until midnight, Friday, June 22, 2018.
Go to our website and start now before it's too late

Take time to learn about the 10 towns and be sure to visit them...add them to your itinery when you next go on a road trip. Or plan a special weekend away to explore one of these fabulous towns. Maybe celebrate a special anniversary by visiting one. There's all sorts of reasons to detour – you won't be disappointed!
Keep an eye out for each town when it's featured on the blog during the year and get the calendar out to plan that trip. Enjoy!
