Introducing American Craft Made

American Craft Made

There's something about craft that brings people together. The personal touch of an artist entices us to wonder who, how, why was it made? Craft is an invitation for us to connect more deeply with one another, our communities, our values, and with the beauty of the world around us.

American Craft Made is a place for this to happen.

Produced by the national nonprofit American Craft Council, this series of marketplace events is designed to connect people to craft artists from across the country—a chance to get to know the makers behind the work we admire, to support their practice, and to bring their craft into our daily lives.

Since putting on our first craft fair in 1966, ACC marketplaces have evolved over the years, always providing a space to connect with artists and celebrate all things handmade. This evolution continues in 2022 as we introduce a new brand for our events (many know them previously as American Craft Shows) along with new ways to experience our marketplaces online as well as in person.
