Arts & Craft Faire

2019 Arts and Craft Banner

This is an incredible opportunity for member artists of the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center to display, demonstrate, and sell their work.

We hold the Arts and Craft Faire in our courtyard. It is an art experience for shoppers as there are so many types of artistry present.  In prior years, we have featured mediums such as woodworking, basketry, photography, painting, sculpture, assemblage, printmaking, weaving and fiber arts, pottery, jewelry, bonsai, handmade cards, stained glass art and more.

The marketplace is held on the first Saturday of the month from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. during the warmer months.
