The Artists of Craft Lake City

 Intro by Esther Meroño 

The alternative craft scene in SLC is alive and kicking. Over 120 artists submitted applications to be featured in SLUG Magazine’s first annual Craft Lake City festival. From these submissions, over 70 artists were picked to sell their handmade items. The alternative craft festival will be held at the Gallivan Center on Aug. 8 from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. The day will include live music from Aye Aye, Casey Prestwood & the Burning Angels, Coyote Hoods, Cub Country, Mad Max and the Wild Ones, Mammoth, Subrosa and Tiny Lights. Sage’s Café and Este Pizzeria will provide food. Entry to the craft festival is free and open to the public. It would be impossible to highlight all of the great artists who will be selling their handmade items at Craft Lake City, but here is a sneak peak of some of the talented people who will be there.


Feel free to use this CLC bracelet pattern (created by SLUG’s graphic artist Joshua Joye) to get your own craft on, and click below to read our artist highlights:
