Our Mission: To educate, promote and inspire local artisans while elevating the creative culture of the Utah arts community through science, technology and art. Craft Lake City’s three-day DIY (Do-It-Yourself) Festival is an annual event, which includes, but is not limited to: Craft Food, Vintage Vendors, DIY Engineers (inside the STEM Building), Artisans and Performers.
Craft Lake City is comprised of a dedicated group of community volunteers, art and craft enthusiasts, DIY engineers and local artisans. Formed in 2009 by Angela H. Brown, editor and publisher of SLUG (SaltLakeUnderGround) Magazine, the organization believes Utah’s unique crafting history and cultural background provides a fertile foundation for the local alternative arts community to grow and flourish, and seeks to strengthen and support it through various activities. Craft Lake City facilitates local art and craft programs throughout the year, providing artists of all mediums with the chance to promote themselves and their work, while educating the community on the local Do-it-Yourself (DIY) culture through workshops, demonstrations, gallery shows, science and technology events and fundraisers.
