Now in it’s third year, Buffalo’s premier alternative art festival, the Jack Craft Fair, will be held on Saturday, Aug. 13, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Buffalo Central Terminal.
The fair’s main attraction is a curated market of more than 100 vendors from Buffalo, Rochester, Syracuse and beyond. Artists specialize in a variety of craft backgrounds including but not limited to jewelry, ceramics, wood working, home decor, print, clothing and more. The fair boasts over 25 vendors never-before-seen in Buffalo including This & That Design Co. from Hamilton, Ontario and Brooklyn-based shop Wrecords by Monkey, which specializes in accessories made from upcycled records.
The event also features a day long workshop schedule of free drop-in workshops and demos including Smartphone Photography, 3D Printing, Screen Printing, Handmade Journals, Mini Macramé Hangings, Geometric Sculptures and a “Rip, Drip and Stick” Collage Owl workshop for kids. Workshops require no pre-registration or prior experience; simply drop-in, make something cool and take it home!
