On the heels of a recent unveiling of a new Art Bike Rack project, and in addition to the annual The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival, The Woodlands Arts Council is now planning the first Texas Fine Craft Show for 2024, organization officials announced Nov. 1.

The event will take place from Nov. 1-3, 2024, at The Woodlands Resort.

The details

The indoor event will celebrate the art of craft with handcrafted items in media, such as fiber, wood, jewelry, glass and ceramic, from juried fine artisans, according to a news release.

The event will consist of a VIP Preview Party on Nov. 1, and throughout the weekend, workshops, question and answer sessions, and other events will take place.

What they're saying

“Fine craft is in our blood, a part of our soul going far back into history," said Glen Rector, president of The Woodlands Arts Council board of directors, in a news release. "Combining skills in producing items for survival ... 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."

“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, in the release.

Fine craft artisans can apply starting Jan. 16, 2024, and sign up for updates.
