Calling all artisans, technicians and crafters!

Todd Blair is a local artist, producer, craftsman, CCA teacher, and curator who needs your help.

Todd was injured in a tragic accident in September at an arts festival in Amsterdam where he was working as part of the Survival Research Labs team. His condition remains serious and his recovery long (he is still in a hospital in Amsterdam). We are reaching out to the community to help raise funds for Todd, and would welcome support from the local craft community.

Fundraising activities for Todd have begun, and there are opportunities for local crafters to get involved. Our main fundraising activity is the “Blue & Green Ball”, special event held for Todd on Saturday, December 1st at SomArts Gallery (934 Brannan Street, SF, CA).

As part of this event, there will be an Art Auction, Shopping Bazaar, Music, Food/Drinks and hopefully you! We encourage you to get involved by donating to this event – your craft, art or goods/services would be greatly appreciated and 100% of the proceeds will go to Todd’s recovery fund.

The Bay Area Arts and Crafts community has a delicious history of taking care of its people when crisis arises and we thank you in advance for your consideration and support. To participate, please send donations by Nov.26th to:
