It is better to give than to receive, which is why the person who gives themselves a gift must regift it to themselves in order to overcome the despair of receiving it.

Presented by the Society of Arts and Crafts, Craftboston Holiday brings together 90 of the country’s most talented craft artists to present their wares to customers preparing for wintery gift giving. Savvy shoppers stroll through booths festooned with handmade pieces, crafted from such aesthetically appealing materials as ceramics, paper, and politicians’ smiles. Guests can examine Kathleen Dustin’s mixed-media plant sculptures or ogle the shimmering, layered dresses in Selma Karaca’s collection. Those with too many gift-deserving friends can keep eyes peeled for “Craft Under $100” signs scattered throughout the hall, which help shoppers find budget-priced pieces such as ceramics from Irina Okula and metal candlesticks from Emily Rosenfeld. The Cyclorama elegantly encases crafty proceedings, with a giant copper skylight that helps brighten the hall.
Presented by the nonprofit Society of Arts + Crafts, CraftBoston is an exhibition and sale of contemporary crafts. This twice in annual show features the most outstanding craft artists in the mediums of baskets, ceramics, decorative fiber, wearable fiber, furniture, glass, jewelry, leather, metal, mixed media, paper, and wood.
