Contemporary Crafts Market

Pasadena Convention Center


The Contemporary Crafts Market is the West Coast's premiere event for one-of-a-kind functional and decorative crafts. This year's market will feature the distinctive works of more than 200 of the nation's finest artists and craftspeople, ranging from intricate jewelry, unique glassware and ceramics to hand-painted textiles, custom furniture, mixed-media creations and much more. All items on display and for sale have been jury-selected for their exceptional quality. The Contemporary Crafts Market has been a showcase for burgeoning and established talent since its inception.

Year after year, the market brings together an eclectic mix of artisans, while also allowing visitors to meet the artists behind some of the nation's finest crafts. Roy Helms, Contemporary Crafts Market founder, has continually sought to raise awareness of fine crafts as a serious art form by highlighting talented artists who have created a name for themselves and whose works can be found in national and international museums or galleries.
