The Woodlands Arts Council (TWAC) announced the first-ever Texas Fine Craft Show planned for next November 1-3, 2024, at The Woodlands® Resort.
The Texas Fine Craft Show will welcome art lovers to a curated indoor environment that celebrates the art of fine craft. This intimate show will display hand-crafted works from fiber, wood, jewelry, glass, and ceramic juried fine artisans using techniques from around the world. A VIP Preview Party will be held November 1, 2024, as an exclusive first-look luxury shopping experience, with more planned throughout the weekend, including Q+A’s and workshops.
As the producers of the renowned The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival, TWAC is thrilled to expand its signature event offerings and to bring something one-of-kind to Texas and the geographic south.
“Fine craft is in our blood, a part of our soul going far back into history. Combining skills in producing items for survival (clothing, tools, furniture, etc.) with meaning and beauty, we end up with fine craft. It resonates with our core and brings us comfort – and sometimes reflection. Our lives are significantly enriched when we embrace fine craft into our daily activities.” said Glen Rector, President of The Woodlands Arts Council Board of Directors. “Hosting the Texas Fine Craft Show in The Woodlands provides an opportunity for everyone to be introduced to those fundamental roots from our past – and see how they remain part of us now and going forward to future generations.”
The Woodlands is a master-planned community situated just 30 minutes north of Houston, featuring world-class shopping, dining, and entertainment options and more than 200 miles of hike-and-bike trails. Poised to celebrate 50 years in 2024, this community revels in the joy of art with a public art collection of over 90 pieces.
The Woodlands Resort is an idyllic escape nestled amongst the trees, offering the perfect backdrop for a day or weekend away. With plenty of dining, spa, and golf activities, the whole family can enjoy the Texas Fine Craft Show without ever leaving this oasis.
“For the past two decades, our community has supported The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival with so much generosity. We are excited and grateful to have the opportunity to expand our mission to make art matter by bringing the Texas Fine Craft Show to life next November,” said Jenny Carattini-Wright, Executive Director of The Woodlands Arts Council.
Fine craft artisans are encouraged to apply starting January 16, 2024, and to sign up here for reminders and updates.
