Sadly our 2011 Austin Craft Riot main event is now over. We had a lovely time last weekend, but you can catch more Craft Riot goodness from part of our team next weekend with nearly two dozen artisans out at East Austin Studio Tour (E.A.S.T.) at spot #67 Weekend Two, hosted by Flatfork Studio. (Map to Smith Road Studios.)
Located over by Tito’s Vodka, this is a fun spot with lots of interesting artistic and handmade joy from nearly two dozen artists in one stop! This will be the 3rd year that Lola the Nubian Queen (one of the coolest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting) will be present with her famous Cajun gumbo and cooking benefiting her program to feed the homeless. Be sure to drop a couple $ in her tip jar to help!
Also, every year that I’ve had the privilege of being at this location, Tito’s has also offered vodka drinks. I hear they have a new airstream bar this year! Faith of Flatfork Studio has some crazy killer sculptures and a giant teeter-totter made to be strong enough for adults as well as kids! Along with some other inventions! Can’t thank her enough for hosting us. Not to mention there will be handmade goodies from a handful of our team colleagues. Oh and even a couple picnic tables if you want to rest and eat. And free snacks and drinks!
If you’re going on the tour, this is one spot not to miss! Let us know if you plan to drop by – Facebook invitation and details here! Also, our friends at The Wonder Craft will also be participating in E.A.S.T. as exhibit #9. Be sure to check them out! (Map to The Wonder Craft.)
