The Craftboston Spring Show unfurls artisan crafts made by a select group of designers. Jaclyn Davidson will be on hand to talk about and hawk her organic, edgy jewelry, and Mike Libby will showcase his iridescent, mechanical insects. Guests can also browse a selection of crafts under $100 or take in lectures ranging from artists discussing their process to on-theme discussion of the steampunk aesthetic—a fusion of Victorian style and modern or sci-fi technology.
Limited-edition and unique pieces for sale from 200 vendors reflect Craftboston’s signature forward-thinking design, often turning a workaday item, such as a coffee mug or a scarf, into a surprising piece of useful art, such as a mug with a scarf tied to it. The exhibit is as much an art museum as it is a gift shop, with a communal environment that encourages visitors to enjoy viewing the works and visiting with fellow indie enthusiasts, even if they don’t purchase an original piece.
Though Craftboston features a variety of discounts for different groups, this Groupon offers the best deal available for all adult customers.
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.
