Roycroft Craftsmen Winter Festival 2022

0

Fans of the Arts and Crafts movement in the United States will be happy to hear that the Roycroft Artisan Winter Festival will take place December 3-4 at the Hampton Inn, 49 Olean St, East Aurora, NY (10am-5pm).

This is an amazing opportunity to see firsthand the works of Roycrofters craftsmen who have been accepted by master craftsmen of the Roycrofters At Large Association (based on their high standards of work as part of a jury process).

“The craftsmen proudly display the double R trademark representing the quality of their work. Roycrofters At Large was founded in 1976 with a mission to keep the Arts & Crafts movement alive, guided by the principles set forth by founder Elbert Hubbard. The event has traditionally been a place to start the holiday gift-giving season with a wonderful selection of handcrafted items made to the highest standards of craftsmanship. – Deborah Muniak, Coordinator Roycrofters-At-Large Assn.

The 2022-23 Roycrofters-at-Large (RALA) “Goodie Box” debuted at the summer festival and raffle tickets will be available for sale both days at the winter festival. The box, valued at over $6,000 and inspired as a nod to Elbert Hubbard’s original “goodie box” concept, contains items created by Roycroft Artisans and is held annually at the National Arts and Crafts Conference, at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C. This year’s box was created by Master Artisan Howard Lehning and includes a one-of-a-kind previously unknown silver worked ring box by founding member and Master Artisan Alburn Sleeper, donated from his private collection by his estate in his honor.

Raffle tickets for the box will be sold throughout the winter festival and also at the RALA Schoolhouse Gallery, located at 1054 Olean Road, East Aurora until February 2023. The current box draw will take place on February 19 2023. The winner need not be present, and multiple entries are both allowed and encouraged.
