Maplewood Y Craft Show – October 18

You’ll not be able to swing a dead cat at the 4th Annual Maplewood Y Craft Show, without hitting a Rochester Artisan!

Start checking off your holiday gift list by shopping among our 40 artisans. You can get a sneak preview on our website, Facebook page and event page.

But wait, there’s more! You can also visit with the Irondequoit Art Club, including a couple of demos:

12:30 to 1:00 – Drawing Portraits (David Pell)

1:00 to 1:30 – How to Tie One On – Creative Scarf Tying (S.A.M. Shrestha)

The FCTT Hi-Railers Model Railroad Club will be on hand as well. Club members will demo and display using craft techniques in model railroading.

9:30 to 11:00 – Demo of ‘Weathering’ for Realistic Effect

And here are all those Rochester Artisan members I was telling you about. This is our second year as a juried show and we’re confident you’ll love the variety and quality.

I love Rochester Brainery! They offer such a great variety of one-session classes, $15-$30. Not only are Rochester Artisans taking classes there, they are teaching. The video shows a painting class taught by Steve Duprey.

I’m not sure if Sigriet Ferrer is a member of Rochester Artisans, but she’s definitely a Facebook friend of ours. She’s teaching Succulent Gardens: Terrarium Workshop in late March. Do I spend too much time on Pinterest or are using succulents in gardening becoming a big thing lately?

Brainery Bazaar
And many Rochester Artisans have participated in their Brainery Bazaar, held the 2nd Saturday of each month. There is always a nice selection of high quality artists there.

On the next First Friday, drop by Rochester Brainery to help them celebrate their success!

1st Brainiversary Event

March 7th 2014 marks our 1-year anniversary! To thank you for your support and to celebrate the occasion, we’re throwing a Brainiversary Celebration!

Not only will we have music from DJ David McGinnis, tasty treats from Scratch Bakeshop, food from Voula’s Greek Sweets and Lento, drinks from Rochrbach’s and Black Button Distilling, but we’ll also be hosting the first ever BATs!!!

What are the BATs, you ask? Well, they’re like the SATs but WAY more fun! This 50 question test is based off of classes we’ve had at Rochester Brainery over the past year.

Buying Local Art Thursday – Sunday, Dec 5 – 8

Square Logo Proud Member

I remember where I was the first time a customer asked me, “Are you local? I’m only buying locally made gifts this year.” This was in 2009, well before these words entered our vocabulary: Buy Local, Eat Local, locavores, Shop Small, Small Business Saturday. That woman opened my mind and I’ve been trying to live that way ever since. I’m not perfect but I try. And I know a lot of you do too.

Our community of artists, Rochester Artisans, has grown from 7 members in 2009, to 692 as of today. And we thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for liking and buying what is our passion to make.

Here’s where you can find some of our members in the days to come of next weekend. There are 17 events listed here so I’m declaring this the High Weekend of Holiday Shopping Local!

Have fun and we thank you!
