Renegade Craft Fair

April 9, 2012 / Events

From San Fran to foggy London, the Renegade Craft Fair is headed your way this summer! Not familiar with the Fair? Imagine a hodgepodge of a hundred creative crafters hockin’ their handmade goods, sort of like a real-life Etsy. With 5 stops on the U.S. tour and 1 in the U.K., indie craft lovers can get their fill of affordable art products straight from the source.

The Renegade Craft Fair launched in 2003 out of Chicago, and focuses on featuring emerging young artists with a flair for DIY. Original work, innovative ideas, and all handmade? Sign us up! Each fair has its own selection jury, which ensures that only the raddest work in high and lowbrow art gets selected. Plus, with super awesome extras like craft workshops, live music, photo booths, raffles, and local food trucks, each Fair promises to be quite the blogger-shopper-media-craft enthusiast event of the year!
