For Artists



CraftBoston is a biannual show and sale of fine contemporary craft and artistic design. Both CraftBoston Spring and CraftBoston Holiday unite talented makers with passionate and knowledgeable shoppers throughout a weekend-long event. The shows are produced by the Society of Arts + Crafts, America’s oldest non-profit craft organization. 

The mission of the Society of Arts + Crafts is to support and celebrate craft makers and their creativity, improving our lives by uniting us through culture and creativity, engaging us with multiple perspectives, and engendering an understanding of ourselves through the makers’ stories. 

Our mission is at the heart of the CraftBoston Spring and Holiday shows. These weekend-long opportunities unite creative, talented makers with passionate collectors and appreciators, thereby contributing to the success of artists and to the cultural enrichment of attendees. 

In 2020, the CraftBoston experience moved online to overcome the barriers to in-person events that have arisen during the Covid-19 pandemic. Featuring the show online significantly enlarges the number of visitors and artist participants.



Applications to participate in CraftBoston Spring and Holiday 2021 are now closed. The application cycle for 2022 will open in July 2021.
