School of Visual Arts alum and current student makers will gather this Saturday at the iconic Metropolitan Pavilion for a pop-up Makers Market of wares. As these things go there will be lots and lots of crafts, from jewelry and apparel to printed matter and furnishings. There will also be a number of unique design and tech objects, notably Chris Dimino’s keyboard waffle iron and Richard Clarkson’s The Cloud Arduino-powered interactive cloud lamp. If you’re in NYC it’s a chance to not only see these things in person but possibly to purchase one too! There are more previews of what’s on offer on SVA’s website.
SVA Makers Market highlights the entrepreneurial, do-it-yourself spirit of SVA alumni. This one-day event will exclusively showcase alumni-made commercial products such as apparel and accessories; furniture; jewelry; housewares and decorative objects; stationery and self-published books, magazines and comics. Makers Market will bring together some of the brightest talent in craft and design.
