The American Craft Council is now accepting AltCraft applications for our flagship show in Baltimore and, new this year, our show in Atlanta.
This bustling section celebrates the innovative techniques and materials of the burgeoning handmade movement. This is an opportunity for talented artists and indie designers to gain national exposure at a well-established show.
We will be accepting 15 artists for Baltimore and 10 for Atlanta.
As part of the Council’s commitment to indie crafters, the cost of participation includes pre-setup of a skirted table, seating, electricity, lighting and trusses. Plus, there’s no application fee
More than 700 artists present their work at the American Craft Council Show in Baltimore, attracting a crowd of 25,000 enthusiasts to the largest juried, indoor craft show in the nation. The cost of a table in the marketstyle space on the showfloor is $600. This year, retail will run 4 days, from Thursday to Sunday, Feb. 25 – 28.
The American Craft Council Show in Atlanta will be celebrating its 21st year in the South, and is noted for its sophisticated sneak-preview party, which last year benefited the Boys & Girls Club of America. The cost of a table in the marketstyle space on the showfloor is $400. Atlanta show dates are Friday to Sunday, Mar. 12- 14, plus an evening event on Thursday, Mar. 11.
Applicants are eligible only if they have NOT shown in an American Craft Council show previously. Embellished commercially-bought items (such as t-shirts and notecards) are not eligible.
The deadline is Thursday, October 15.
