The Women’s Building Annual Celebration of Craftswomen, showcasing the work of more than 150 juried artists, takes place two Saturdays and Sundays, November 24-25, and December 1-2, 2012, from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day at the Herbst Pavilion at Fort Mason Center in San Francisco. Admission is $9.00 for adults, $7.00 for seniors, students and disabled, and free for children ages 12 and under. A two-day pass is $12.00.
Now in its 34th year, the Celebration of Craftswomen — the only exclusively female show in the country — is the jewel of San Francisco’s alternative holiday shopping season. Featuring more than 150 artists, from near and far, this community-driven celebration offers the latest trends in handcrafts as well as the classics. Visitors can peruse and purchase a vast array of clothing, furniture and accessories, jewelry, bags and purses, bath and beauty items, housewares, ceramics and pottery, paper goods, glass, and art – all under one roof, and all made in the USA.

Holiday shopping at the Celebration of Craftswomen not only provides a variety of unique gifts, but a new twist on engaging with your inner-crafts persona. This year’s show will include a large knitting lounge, engaging live art projects and entertainment. There will also be a gift-wrapping station, coat and baggage check, a café and food cart services celebrating the many food-craftswomen in the community. Also new this year will be a special Women in Film Program where visitors can take a break and catch a series of films especially programmed for the Celebration of Craftswomen.

Introducing a New Highlight – A Celebration of Women in Film 

On Saturday, December 1, A Celebration of Craftswomen launches a brand new program for the first time this year called A CELEBRATION OF WOMEN AND FILM featuring two dynamic film programs: LUNAFEST – a series of nine short films from women around the world ; and the new acclaimed documentary by Bay Area filmmaker Kristy Guevara-Flannagan WONDER WOMEN! THE UNTOLD STORY OF SUPERHEROINES, a benefit for the Women’s Building in SF that includes a pre-screening reception, a post-screening discussion with filmmaker in-person and a silent auction.

The Celebration is wheelchair accessible. For more information please telephone 650-615-6838, email to Craftswomen@gmail.com, or visit celebrationofcraftswomen.org.
