San Francisco Bay Area Craft Week
San Francisco Bay Area Craft Week
Online September 7 – 13, 2020 (more information to come)
American Craft Council is taking the Bay Area's handmade culture online
The craft we encounter in communities across America makes those places unique. That’s something worth celebrating, and that’s what San Francisco Bay Area Craft Week is all about.

We won’t be able to show up in San Francisco in person this year for our annual American Craft Show, so we’re bringing the Bay Area’s vibrant handmade culture straight to you. Join us online September 7 – 13 to experience the innovative work happening in this area, get to know both local and national artists, buy their work, and explore the important ways craft can impact our lives. Craft Week is free and open to all.
During Craft Week, you can find 130+ artists from across the country and the Bay Area who are working to bring craft into our lives, affirming its importance, and building awareness and connection to the process of making. Our marketplace opens on Thursday and runs for four consecutive days. Here, you can shop handmade product lines and original, one-of-a-kind, artisan-made goods.
Jump onto the Craft Week site and tune into what makers are listening to when they are in their studios. Turn it on. Turn it up. Shop and jam. Six playlists from six marketplace artists to compliment your Craft Week experience.
Hang with your favorite marketplace makers at any one of these artist interaction sessions. Hear what products are new. See how their work is being made. Interact and ask questions about their work and careers. Two live makers meetups each day. The maker designs the meetup.
Click to step inside the studios and workspaces of select makers and get a glimpse of where and how they make their work. These pre-recorded studio tours take you deep inside their inspirational workspaces.
Go deep and center craft in your everyday life. Jump online with your friends or family to try your hand at any one of these live making workshops. Our craft instructors will be there to walk you through a lively and joyful making experience! Get messy. Get making. Get connected. Watch the visceral and virtual worlds collide.
Each morning during Craft Week, we’ll deliver a new and unique Bay Area craft street guide to your inbox. Our grassroots guides connect you to the history and present moment of Bay Area craft and community. Discover how craft makes a place.
To amplify the tangible culture and creative expression of place, we sought out a collage of Bay Area collectors to share their unexpected collections that are indicative of the history and present moment of Bay Area craft culture and community.
Be the first to shop the marketplace and join the 15,000+ members and affiliates from across the country who believe in centering craft in our social lives and supporting makers. ACC hosts an online kick-off party featuring local tastemakers, curators, and artists. RSVP for the preview party.
