Selfmade- A Makers Collective
march 27, 2017
Do you have plans for next May 6, 2017? So...If you're around the Hudson Valley -NYC included, of course!- come to Self Made and stop by to say hello!!!
"Self Made is a Makers Collective that brings together the top craftspeople and artisans in the Hudson Valley and surrounding areas for a one-day marketplace.
The day features 70+ vendors, some which include fashion and jewelry designers, leather workers, metalsmiths, apothecaries, natural beauty makers and more. Our vendors have earned the distinction of being recognized as inspirational figures within the handmade movement for demonstrating a level of savviness and skillset that has raised the bar of excellence in the Made-in-America circle.
The event also showcases a number of promising up and comers, local food trucks, and music.
We’re excited to introduce the public to new faces while also hosting some OG industry favorites.
This year Self Made will be held at the historic University Settlement Camp, located at the base of Mount Beacon in Beacon, NY. We will be utilizing three buildings plus lots of lawn space!
Noted by Dwell Magazine for “flourishing with an abundance of small businesses, charming eateries, and intriguing young galleries” , Beacon has seen a resurgence in the last decade. A “popular weekend getaway” according to Conde Nast Traveler, it has a tightknit community that’s eager to support the entrepreneurship and innovation taking place in the small city. People love to take part of the internationally renowned art scene, hike the mountain and visit other landmark places such as Bannerman Castle and the Hudson River. While it’s home to a Second Saturday, an impressive farmer’s market, and Jazz Festival, an event of this magnitude has never taken place. We look forward to bringing Self Made to the city and hope you want to join us!"
Looking forward to meeting you!!
