SNAG is happy to announce that we reached our goal of $25,000 in donations at the end of 2013, so we will receive a matching grant! Thank you so much – we couldn’t have done it without you!
SNAG would like to thank all of the artists and buyers who participated in Uniques, our holiday sale on eBay. The sale successfully showed the public some of the work of SNAG members while raising funds for the organization.
“From Grains to Gold,” SNAG’s 43rd annual conference, takes place April 23-26, 2014 in Minneapolis! This conference will explore the relationship between the maker and the materials at a time when the materials, techniques, and processes are rapidly changing, and examine the growing trends of consumers’ desire for the ‘hand-made’ and – most importantly – what it really means to be “hand-made” in the 21st century. Registration opens January 21st. Learn more>>>
