The 15th annual Smithsonian Craft2Wear show returns to Washington, D.C., on Thursday at the National Building Museum.
The three-day event—held from Oct. 20-22—is the first in-person show since prior to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2019.
“The show features the work of more than 80 premier jewelry, leather, and wearable artisans from throughout the country who will be selling their craft throughout the event,” according to a press release.
Craft2Wear is produced by the Smithsonian Women’s Committee to highlight and elevate women’s contributions to “American contemporary craft and design” through wearable art. All proceeds from the event go toward Smithsonian grants for research, education, and outreach.
Craft2Wear kicks off Oct. 20 with a benefit from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., giving you the chance to meet some of the artists and peruse their works while enjoying cocktails and hors d’oeuvres.
During the remaining days of the event, attendees can peruse and shop the various artists’ collections. Tickets are $20 at the door or $17 online.
