The artists of north central Baltimore are as unique as the neighborhoods they hail from. While those in the know are already familiar with Jennifer Strunge’s cotton monsters, Shawna Pincus’s pottery, and Monica’s stationary—many of us may not be familiar with how many local crafters are out there using traditional methods to make one-of-a-kind items.
So, whether you are a seasoned follower of the craft movement or simply have an affinity for all things handmade, you should not miss the Charm City Craft Mafia’s annual Pile of Craft on June 25. Hosted at St. John’s Church in Charles Village (2640 St. Paul St), this event gathers more than 65 local and national independent artists, designers, and crafters annually. You’ll find books, clothing, cards, toys, jewelry, accessories, bath and beauty products (the list could go on and on) – all of which are made by hand.
While you’re browsing, enjoy fresh burritos from Curbside Café, or check out a live weaving demonstration! Also don’t forget to buy a raffle ticket to be entered to win a huge basket of crafts from the different vendors! Proceeds will be donated to Baltimore Clayworks.
This event is free. For general information, visit the Charm City Craft Mafia.
