The Department of Craft is dedicated to the advancement of the contemporary craft
movement through sales, education, and community outreach. Our intention is to
promote quality crafts in the Paciﬁc Northwest by not only focusing on craft artists
working locally but also by bringing in artists from around the country. Two annual
sales will bookend a fundraising effort to support a Portland based non-proﬁt and/or
education institution that is focused on craft. By working together as a group of artists
we hope to enrich our community, support future craft artists, and develop a higher
standard of craft.
