On Friday Dec 14, Jonathan Zarov speaks with Jackie Matelski and Rachel Dolnick to speak about Handmade Madison: Indie Craft Marketplace. They encourage people to visit the marketplace so that they can meet with the artists who make the crafts. The items are all hand-made, including pet themed art, screen printed clothing, handbags, wood cutting boards, recycled leather jewelry, and more. The aim of the event is to provide a wide variety of locally-made items, with the artists present on site.
“The marketplace is the best way for an artist to be making money. There’s no middle man for a gallery… once the vendor has set up and paid their booth fee, everything goes to them.” Jackie and Rachel are themselves artists – a potter and a jeweller.
