RISD Craft Show — Benefit Street

(10.12) Benefit Street between Waterman and Hopkins will be closed off this Saturday for the annual RISD Craft Show. Alumni and students have produced ceramics, painting, textiles, sculpture, glass, jewelry, and printmaking of the highest order. (Facebook event.)

It’s time again for RISD’s annual juried sale! Featuring handmade fine art and design work by more than 90 alumni and 30 current students.

Viewers have the opportunity to engage with makers while finding unique gifts and one-of-a-kind items at this outdoor sale, which runs for one day only – during RISD Weekend, our alumni reunion and family weekend.

RISD Craft is free and open to the public and takes place rain or shine (under a street tent if the forecast warrants it). Be sure to cast your vote for the People’s Choice award.

(Seen here are two works, ‘Lucky Panda’ and ‘Lucky Tiger,’ by Ha Factory (John Ha, ’01 PR). Go here for a current list of participating artists.)

Free, 10am to 5pm, Saturday, October 12, 210 Benefit Street, (directions)

Check out the candy-inspired jewelry by Glitterlimes (Debbie Tuch, ’96 JM). These gummy bear earrings are made out of candy, resin, acrylic, and sterling silver. The pinwheel gala earrings are made out of Japanese candy, Jordan almonds, resin, and sterling silver.
