What To Expect in American Craft Magazine

Our quarterly publication introduces you to the artists whose innovative handmade work is defining today’s vibrant craft movement. Its pages share their stories, shed light on their practices, and reveal the ways making shapes our contemporary lives. Don’t miss out on this essential content—join today to get a year's worth of beautifully designed issues sent to your home.

Your publication is undervalued. It belongs in the Pantheon of Publications with The New Yorker, NatGeo, and Omni. At least one time per issue my mind is completely blown by the differently paradigmed makers. I like having my mind blown!
