The Renegade Craft Fair last year and it was amazing. I was so inspired by the beautiful works of each individual artist. I was introduced to Catia Chien (one of my now-favorite artists), saw the Red Velvet Art girls (as mentioned in a previous post), bought a print that I hung up in my dorm, and bought my first drawing journal (by Disconsolator)! I went with my friend Genna, and we made friends with two people who invited us to a party. We weren't able to attend, and I can't seem to remember their names now, but I learned it's definitely a good place to network with other artists, if you haven't visited before. It's also a great place to get lovely art for cheap while supporting handmade! I would highly recommend it. If you can't make it to the one in SF, they have other dates in Brooklyn, London, and Chicago, to name a few! I may just go down to the one in LA so that I can visit some friends down there.
Here's a picture of some of the things we bought/ gathered last year, to give you an idea of what's there:
See you there (possibly)!
