In a time of easy access to how-to videos and blogs, major craft fairs might only serve as inspiration for whatever your next D.I.Y. project might be. But walk inside the Renegade Craft Fair, and you’ll quickly learn that craft has gone far beyond the basics. Recycled book covers turned into laser-etched butterfly pins? Check. A necktie made out of wood? Check.
At the Fort Mason show last weekend, more than 200 vendors brought a variety of booths, filled with everything from incredibly detailed jewelry and hand painted dinnerware sets to funky screen-printed tees. Not only did this installment of the Renegade Craft Fair reveal that flare and innovation are still alive in today’s saturated D.I.Y. market, but the free-to-attend event also made the latest in craft accessible to all.
Here are a few shots of what we found at the Renegade Craft Fair:
