It's our 10th anniversary this year, let's celebrate - we'd love you to join us during 4-13 October 2019, all you need to do is host an event during American Craft Week.
So, what can you do to celebrate with us? Here's a few suggestions... there are loads more ideas out there but here's a start:
+ If you're a gallery, have 10 of your craft artists do a demonstration of their craft. It's a great way to introduce people to a variety of crafts.
+ Get your artists and crafters to create a piece on the subject of "10" - maybe at a special event and give them 10 minutes/20 minutes etc to complete it. It's fun and gets everyone involved.
+ Arrange an evening art stroll and organise events at 10 neighboring businesses based on a craft theme.
+ Feature 2 craft artists every day for 5 days.
+ Arrange an artist talk at a library to broaden children's ideas on craft - make it fun around a 10 theme.
we bet you can come up with some really cool ideas. You don't have to base the events around the number 10, we just thought it might be fun. Our main aim is you celebrate American crafters and artists all over the country and the beauty they create. Put on your thinking hats and let's get creative!
