Indie Craft Experience

A group of talented artists and designers all got together on Saturday for the Atlanta Indie Craft Experience. The event took place at The B Complex in the West End.

The building was transformed into a crafter's market complete with artists, food vendors, a DJ and a sustainability crew. Not quite the High Museum of Art, the B Complex surrounded the handmade creations with broken windows and portable heaters but the room's talent and passion for independence rivaled that of any renaissance artist. The independent spirit sustains the belief that anyone can use their creative ideas to contribute to the community. Many of the crafts offered were practical, affordable, recycled, and all were laced with an entrepreneurial drive.
