At the last Handmade Holidays hosted by C{Space we were thrilled to learn that the nouveau crafting art community is thriving in Dayton! We came up with the idea to develop a cooperative handmade craft shop featuring 30 local artists a month. Each artist would commit to run the shop one day a month. As the concept grows other duties and additional staff will be managed in the same way.  The shop will be arranged in displays mixing the artist goods to create interesting vignettes.  The displays will be created by combining the artist’s resources and with custom construction. Items such as felted Jewelry, gen-x themed tea towels, found art sculpture and jewelry, creative clothing items, handmade paper and books as well as art cards will be incorporated. Great idea right!
