CELEBRATING THE ARTIST IN EVERYONE SINCE 1977!

Craft Highlights

By McKenzie Jones Rounds, May 29, 2017

One of the best parts of our arts festival is the art! We are honored to host over 100 craft vendors from Ithaca and beyond who will be setting up beautiful booths to share their talents with you. Be sure to stop by all of the artist locations along the Commons and Cayuga Street to support handmade arts and crafts.

Here's a taste of what's to come:

Golden Hand Design

Learning to knit and crochet at a young age is where I started. It starts somewhere...my mother planted the seed. I hadn't picked up my hobby in many years till my daughter opened her shop on etsy and suggested I do the same. And it all comes back to you and so do the trends... they evolve with time. Creating simple things with yarn and thread for peoples enjoyment is a very fulfilling concept. I am enjoying every moment, and I'm loving the opportunity. Every day talking to people all over the world and sending them their orders. Chatting with them through emails and you eventually become friends without even meeting them. Its truly amazing! I was lucky enough to to sell my barefoot sandals to Free People and to be featured on the front cover of Billabong's Spring and summer catalog 2013. My rainbow crocheted top had the pleasure of being in the Hollywood bowl production of Hair. It's been the most wonderful experience and I hope it continues!

Wozz!
Wozz! had already been recognized in Sydney and Hobart fine food awards which confirmed that we were on the right track before moving to the US. Here, it was accolades of being a sofi awards winner, in four different categories from 2014-2016 that set Wozz! up to be regarded as one of New England and America's most outstanding new companies in quality and innovation. It was in 2014 and after only 9 months in business Wozz! burst onto the awards stage as a three-time finalist in New York City's Specialty Food Associations "sofi" awards. Our creditability continues to grow with two Yankee Magazine Editors Choice awards and a stream of articles and publications celebrating products from our entire line.

Skelly Chic
Skelly Chic combines my love of skeletons with an inherent need to live in color! I work in a variety of media, and design, build, sculpt, paint and detail each skelly by hand from start to finish. I’m continually inspired by Day of the Dead folk art, what I see in nature, patterns of all kinds, and time spent in the southwest. What emerges are one-of-a-kind, enchanting skellies that are ready to charm your soul!
