Tools of the Trades
Join CraftNOW and NextFab March 23-25, 2022, as they present their first three-day digital conference Tools of the Trades connecting artisans to business resources in Philadelphia and beyond.
CraftNOW activates the city in conjunction with the Philadelphia Museum of Art Contemporary Craft Show throughout the month of November. In 2022, CraftNOW presents the theme Public | Private to examine how handmade elements and crafted objects communicate whether architectural space is shared or private, and to explore which processes and aspects of their creative identities artists choose to share with their audiences.
