After months of anticipation, the popular Renegade Craft Fair is set to take over DTLA's Grand Park once again. It's all happening this weekend — July 9th through 10th — and the outdoor marketplace will feature tons of inspiring indie vendors, just like last time.
Since this summer's show stars more than 275 makers, we're here to roundup six must-see talents to beeline to if you're pressed for time.
JANEL FOO GLASSWORK
Janel Foo Glasswork produces stunning, stained glass objects right here in LA. Add one of these unique works of art to your macrame and airplant-filled rooms.
Erin Eastabrooks hails from Oakland, California, and she's literally stitching a new breed of pillow art with her original embroidery.
AMANDA MARIE CERAMICS
Amanda Marie Ceramics is singlehandedly proving that indie ceramics are so hot right now, and for good reason. Handmade with love in Victoria, BC, these beauties fit right into California's modern boheme lifestyle.
Hannah Nance knows that pins and patches are having the best moment ever, which is why the LA artist and screenprinter is having a blast producing designs that are "feminine, graphic, colloquial, personal, kitsch, sometimes coarse and sometimes saccharine."
HOLLYWOOD FODDER JEWELRY
Hollywood Fodder Jewelry produces elegant, futuristic jewelry that is as architecturally-inclined as it is museum-worthy. Designer Janette Timm handmakes everything in Los Angeles using sustainable and ethical materials forged in the USA. All pieces are nickel-free.
