Spring is just around the corner and Crafts at Lyndhurst is coming with it! This popular semiannual event is held each year on the weekend before Mother’s Day and is located in the beautiful Hudson Valley, which National Geographic, Fodor’s and Time Magazine have all recently named one of the “Top Places to Visit” in the world.
Spring Crafts at Lyndhurst, April 29 – May 1, 2016, showcases over 275 modern American makers, artists, designers and craftspeople from across the country and is a celebration of all things handmade. These exceptional indie artists infuse each of their pieces with a distinctive creative vision. Spring Crafts at Lyndhurst offers a full day art and shopping experience for the entire family. Meet these talented emerging and seasoned makers who will be selling their exciting contemporary creations at Westchester County’s most beloved arts event and favorite out-of-the-box shopping experience. Truly a destination event not to miss, along the coast of the inspiringly beautiful Hudson River.
The show includes one-of-a-kind and limited edition creations in every material imaginable. Find earrings made of sterling silver and python; handbags made with airplane cables; scarves made of bamboo; necklaces made of meteorites; pens made of money; and bowls that look like cantaloupes, alongside contemporary craft pottery, wood furniture, handwoven fashions, bronze sculpture, blown glass objects and more.
