  • The Virtual 12th Annual Craft Lake City Stewards Creative, Local Business in Salt Lake

    In 2009, the first Craft Lake City DIY Festival launched with the mission to educate, promote and inspire local artisans while elevating the creative culture of the Utah arts community through science, technology and art. Craft Lake City does this by showcasing locals with exceptional technical skill and promoting regional spending through creative commerce in Utah. Eleven years later, craft fairs and farmers’ markets are now as “Salt Lake City” as mountain views or our collective worker-bee spirit⁠⁠⁠. This year, The 12th Annual Craft Lake City DIY Festival will bring us together to celebrate the do-it-yourself (DIY) mentality, even with the challenges presented by COVID-19, says Angela H. Brown, Executive Director of Craft Lake City. Although 2020’s Festival will be hosted in a virtual reality environment, the format has been designed so you can still interact with 150-plus craftspeople, makers and engineers who craft with technology, create innovative household products and decorative objects. Attendees, volunteers and exhibitors will communicate inside the platform using digital avatars to represent themselves and talk using their computer microphones or headsets. Here, three of these local artists discuss their wares and participation in the Virtual DIY Festival.
