An Evening of Hearts and Crafts

That’s right, Marin Handmade is celebrating Valentine’s Day with another festive evening at Art Works Downtown in San Rafael! Come by and meet some of our newest members, shop for your sweetie and do a crafty project to get you in the spirit of everyone’s favorite romantic holiday!


Final Events of 2012: Last Chance Holiday Fairs

Marin Handmade has been growing as we add new members to the collective. It is exciting to see such support for local handmade goods in the bay area.


This Friday, December 14, we’ll be doing an exciting collaboration with the Marin History Museum, who has just opened a new museum shop in the plaza on 4th St. in downtown San Rafael. The Mini Holiday Craft Fair will coincide with the Friday Artwalk in Downtown San Rafael from 5-8pm. Come visit us at 1026 Court St off of 4th st.


Participating Artists:

The Marin History Museum will continue to operate a rotating schedule exhibits from the beautiful Boyd Estate in San Rafael, a previous home of Arctic Explorer and adventurer Louise Arner Boyd.

Stay tuned for Heirloom Craft Night at the Marin History Museum – we’ll be doing some collaborations in 2013 including the heirloom watch case locket workshop with Compass Rose Design Jewelry.
