Say "craft fair," and image of macrame and knitted tissue-containers may dance in your head, but we swear these events are anything but tired and boring. And it doesn't matter what side of the Bay Bridge you're on this weekend, there's a crafty event for you:
Renegade Craft Fair: This bi-annual craft fair features art, housewares, clothing, garden supplies, and much more -- as well as each vendor is "juried in-house" by the staff. The two day event is taking place on July 19-20, from 11 a.m.-6 p.m. at Fort Mason, entrance is free; more info can be found on the Renegade site.
Meet Your Maker: Across the Bay Bridge, the David Brower Center is hosting a craft sale from those behind the Treasure Island Flea Market and conducting workshops on items from in-home fermentation to how to timebank. More information on the workshop schedule can be found on their site: browercenter.org; the event is July 19, noon-6 p.m., entrance is free.
