The Renegade Craft Fair (RCF) is a large scale marketplace event, showcasing the work of contemporary indie-craft artists. Featuring hundreds of artists at a time, vendors travel from all over to sell their handmade goods and original artwork. RCF is held in urban epicenters of creative indie-entrepreneurship throughout the US and abroad – including Brooklyn, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, and London (UK). Join the London RCF on September 15th and 16th 2012 from 11am-6pm both days at the Old Truman Brewery for the very best in indie crafts from the UK
The Renegade Craft Fair differs from traditional arts and craft fairs by focusing on DIY and indie-craft culture. Each individual fair is juried from hundreds of applications to purposefully feature a curated, eclectic array of young and emergent designers producing original and handmade goods in a wide variety of media. The Fair feature artists with a Do It Yourself spirit – creating innovative work using traditional craft methods, but not based on preexisting patterns or products. Each event features paper goods, housewares, ceramics, bath products, jewelry, craft kits, accessories, clothing, comics, knits, curios, collectibles, artwork, and so much more.
All of The Renegade Craft Fairs are juried separately and each fair features a unique line-up of artists. While they have some returning vendors and some artists who travel to participate in each and every event, the new applicants are always very welcome. The Renegade Craft Fair draws thousands upon thousands of attendees – shoppers, arts and crafts enthusiasts, media scouts, bloggers and tastemakers all make a point of turning out to see what’s new and to stock up on unique artist created goods.
