Twice a year, we host craft artists from all around the country for the region's premier, juried exhibition and sale of contemporary craft. Guests meet and interact with the artists who make handmade goods using centuries-old skills in mediums like ceramics, fiber, glass, metal, and wood. A ticket to CraftBoston Holiday supports its presenter, Society of Arts + Crafts, the nation's oldest craft nonprofit.
