Bespoke Art & Craftsmanship, a collective of art based businesses, will host its first virtual artisan summit to educate art consumers about the work of NYS artisans and also assist artists recovering from financial loss due to Covid-19 shutdowns.
The Bespoke Art & Craftsmanship Virtual Summit event begins on Friday, October 15th and concludes Sunday, October 24th. Each day the summit will feature a video visit to a different working studio where information on processes, materials, techniques and tools will be presented by the artisan.
Virtual attendees will be able to watch the artisans working in their studios and learn about the training, materials, tools and processes that go into the making of:
Custom fine jewelry (https://fgconclusions.com/),
Reclaimed fabric creations (https://rhinestonelifestyle.com/),
Up-cycled metal work (https://upcycling4acause.etsy.com),
Ceramic garden sculpture (https://www.thestudiorochester.com/),
Original greeting cards (https://www.thememorableimage.com/) and
From Friday, October 15 – Thursday October 21, a video featuring one of the artisans in the collective will be released each day and will be available for 24 hours.
All access viewing will be available for all the artisans’ videos from Friday, October 22nd – Sunday, October 24th.
While the virtual summit is free, donations are requested and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the CNY Arts Covid-19 Arts Impact Fund, which provides financial support to artists and arts organizations in a 7-county region of Central New York and the Mohawk Valley affected by the pandemic.
