Celebrate the senses of spring! More than 250 of the nation’s most accomplished craftspeople invite spring cleaners and sun-seekers to awaken their senses and treat themselves to fine, contemporary crafts. Jury-selected craftspeople personally show and sell one-of-a-kind handmade items in functional and decorative pottery, sculpture, glass, jewelry, fashion, wood, metal, furniture, home accessories, photography and fine art.
The Sugarloaf Crafts Festival in Gaithersburg will feature:
-“A Sensory Celebration,” the show’s new theme, highlights the full experience of enjoying fine, contemporary American crafts with thousands of handcrafted items to touch, see, taste, smell and hear.
-Gourmet foods and Spring-time favorites—including candies and chocolates, soups, artisan breads, jams and dips, syrups and olive oils—will be available to sample and purchase from dozens of specialty food purveyors.
-Master craftspeople will show how their work is made in continuous live demonstrations.
-Family entertainment includes interactive children’s dress up theater and contemporary live music.
