West Coast Craft 2015

This is not my first time at the rodeo, you may recall that I previously documented going to the West Coast Craft show way back in 2013! I like attending this show not because I’m on the hunt to purchase more things, I actually love going because it inspires me to create!! I like to sew (still learning), exploring embroidery, trying to kickstart my calligraphy again, crochet, home decorating, and crafting in general – that I get to see trends and just get inspired. I have been to several other craft shows as well, and definitely felt that for a few years some creators were relying heavily on jumping on a bandwagon of making things out of canvas and leather – I’m happy to report that bandwagon  has scaled back significantly finally.

So here are some fun photos of things I enjoyed!

A cute hanging shelf with a hole for your small planter – I can see one hanging by the window at home.

This booth had a lot of embroidered clothing – something I have been hoping to do (currently on the hunt for some vintage Levi’s!)

An up close photograph of one of the wool weavings we saw – the tufts are very large and billowing, unlike many of the structured weavings we’re used to seeing. Once I get the right materials, I’m definitely going to try this!

I absolutely loved the leather products at this booth! The aged leather had a gradient of color that was so beautiful in person. The black and brown leather together was just divine.

Who can resist a flowery print?

We saw a lot of ceramics – these marbleized ones were very cool

This booth consisted of rugs created by students who just used their imagination to create – I say that the results are actually really creative and artsy!

Not the best photo unfortunately, but I loved the printed silks inspired by nature at this booth

Hovering above one booth, they were really trying to make a point I guess, this giant shirt loomed over us 🙂
