Escape the Mass-Produced and Mundane at Last Day of The Artazan Show

Last chance to immerse in a celebration of the handmade at contemporary craft market
Published on May 19, 2024

In an era of mass production and endless virtual markets, there’s something special about holding a beautifully handcrafted item in your hands, feeling the texture of the natural materials, and connecting with the passion of the artisan who made it. Today, that magic is happening at the Pasadena Convention Center as The Artazan Show enters its final day, bringing together around 200 talented makers for a contemporary craft market extravaganza.

Inspired by the Arts & Crafts Movement, the show celebrates the rich tradition of craftsmanship and the timeless appeal of goods made by hand with care. 

The Artazan Show brings together artisans, craftspeople, and makers who specialize in creating one-of-a-kind pieces using traditional techniques, natural materials, and brilliant colors. The focus is on handcrafted items that reject mass production in favor of meticulous handmade detail and craftsmanship.

Exhibitors from across the country have gathered to showcase their unique creations, ranging from intricately designed jewelry and hand-tooled leather accessories to one-of-a-kind furniture pieces and vibrant glasswork.

As visitors step into the bustling Hall B, they are greeted by a kaleidoscope of colors, textures, and designs. Jewelsmiths display their sparkling collections of earrings, necklaces, and bracelets, each piece telling a story through its carefully selected gemstones and meticulously crafted settings. 

Nearby, painters and photographers proudly present their works, capturing moments of beauty and emotion on canvas and film.

The Artazan Show, which concludes today, May 19, at the Pasadena Convention Center in DT Pasadena, is a contemporary handcraft market featuring around 200 exhibits and special events showcasing jewelry, clothing, decor, and handcrafted products directly from artisans and tradespeople. 

The show is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on its final day.

Parking options include $15 self-parking at the Pasadena Convention Center and street parking and nearby lots starting at $2.
