If you are in Seattle on Sunday be sure to check out the Urban Craft Uprising event. It’s a craft sale by indie designers and crafters. “Our mission: We are funky, independent designers with craftitude. We will bring to Seattle, Washington an annual juried show of over 50 vendors whose work is handmade and reflects the current DIY revolution. Our goal is to provide the optimal environment for vendors to showcase their creations and for the public to have the opportunity to buy unique, handmade, one-of-a-kind items.” [via] Link.

  1. Just a little snarkiness on a Sunday morning…while requiring that the crafts are handmade is great, jurying a craft show is different and in many ways is the antithesis of “open-source”. People in charge decide what you should see for sale, and what you should buy in a given venue, based on their personal aesthetics.

    Is this a good or a bad thing? There are a limited number of spaces so the show organizers have to decide somehow how to assign spaces, and balance the types of crafts on display, so I understand the reasons behind it, but it does limit the consumers choice, and the artists ability to have their wares displayed.

    I don’t know why I bring this up, except that I am a craft vendor (and before you jump to conclusions, I didn’t try and sell at this show and get rejected…) and a lot of people don’t know about the mechanics of the handcrafted marketplace.
