Free this weekend: Renegade Craft Fair + Graffiti at CAFAM

Posted by Carren Jao Pineda |

I first heard about this event from a very crafty friend and I thought, "That's an awesome name for a craft fair." This Christmas season, do some last minute shopping (or simply salivating) at the crafts on display at the Renegade Craft Fair in Los Angeles State Historic Park.

I'll be in SF this weekend, but if you go, expect everything from jewelry and clothing, ceramics and stationery, bath products and posters, housewares and comics and plush objects, plus a lot of sunshine and greenery. Make your own shopping bag with a little help from Hands-On Third. Get some wacky mementos of yourself at the free photobooth by Magnolia Photobook Co. The part that makes me happiest is that most people probably won't even need a car to get here. The park is a quick walk from the Metro Gold Line Chinatown stop.

Know what's even more renegade? Graffiti. Stop by the Craft and Folk Art Museum for a graffiti workshop by artist Galo MAKE Canote, who is part of the museum's current Borderlandia exhibition. Walk out with a deeper appreciation for the outlaw art and your own lettering style to boot.
