Just in time for the holidays, the Contemporary Crafts Market comes to the Pasadena Convention Center Nov. 1—3. Returning as the West Coast’s premier event for one-of-a-kind functional and decorative crafts, the November market will feature the distinctive works of approximately 200 of the nation’s finest artists — ranging from intricate jewelry, unique glassware and ceramics to hand-painted textiles, custom furniture, mixed-media creations, and much more. All items on display and for sale have been jury-selected for their exceptional quality.
The Contemporary Crafts Market has been a showcase for burgeoning and established talent since its inception 28 years ago. The market comes to Pasadena for the first time ever and brings together an eclectic mix of artisans, while also allowing visitors to meet the artists behind some of the nation’s finest crafts.
“Each year, the Contemporary Crafts Market provides shoppers and collectors with some of the finest craft pieces from across the United States,” said Roy Helms, founder of the Contemporary Crafts Market and past president of the American Craft Enterprises, the marketing arm of the American Crafts Council. “This market will be no exception, with a truly extraordinary array of pieces available to visitors that are perfect gifts for family and friends.”
Schedule: Friday, Nov. 1, and Saturday, Nov. 2, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sunday, Nov. 3, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission: $8, children 12 and under are free.
