PARTICIPATORY SPORT FOR CRAFT ARTISTS
Every Fall, crafthaus awards a micro project grant to a crafthaus member regardless of location, professional background, or craft field. The grant is unrestricted and intended to provide assistance for a personal or group project. Want to learn a new skill? Have an idea that just needs a little financial help? Wished you could get a craft community related project off the ground?
Past recipients started an international community project with a women's cooperative in Turkey, traveled from Australia to Canada to partake in collaborations across craft media, and learned new techniques that fell outside of their usual scope of work.
What's your project? Get funded!
