One of the Keys’ largest and most anticipated craft shows is right around the corner. The 30thannual Key West Craft Show runs Saturday, January 30th and Sunday, January 31st from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day. Nearly 100 artisans will be on hand for the show at Caroline and Whitehead Street in Old Town Key West.
Sponsored by the Key West Art Center, the show features an array of wares and crafts from all over the United States. Many of the community’s favorites will be returning, along with a number of new and exciting artisans and craftsmen.
The broad selection of crafts keeps Key Westers coming to this great show year after year. This year’s artisans offer a wonderful variety of work from home décor in metal and wood to soft sculpture dolls. You will enjoy artistic clothing and accessories from hats to handbags, ceramics and hand turned wood kitchen items. You’ll find gorgeous jewelry in gold, silver, glass, shells and precious stones. Handcrafted furniture, toys, and metal sculpture are all offered at the show. From the light-hearted to the exquisite, you’ll find it all at the Key West Craft Show.
“National recognition, and the continued popularity of this show,” says show director Lois Songer, “means that each year we attract the finest artisans and skilled craftsmen to our community.”
The Key West Art Center sponsors the show as an extension of its support of local arts. The Art Center provides its local artist members with a gallery to display their work and provides classes and free lectures on a regular basis. The Craft Show committee acknowledges the City Of Key West, and the Truman Annex for their assistance. For more info contact us at KWCraftShow@earthlink.net or call (305) 294-1241.
