Craftsmen's Fair - Exhibitions
Fine craft is not only beautiful to see, it becomes an integral part of our daily lives. Each year, four exhibitions at the Annual League of NH Craftsmen’s Fair demonstrate how handcrafted furnishings, sculptures, prints, and art-to-wear clothing and accessories can be both functional and works of art.
Living With Craft Exhibition
More than 200 handcrafted works are creatively arranged in a series of room vignettes. As you view the furniture, accessories, wall-hangings, sterling silver tableware, and lighting fixtures, you'll be able to imagine them in your home. Each vignette features a diverse collection of craft media that creates rooms with a vibrant look and cohesive feel – rooms you would want to live in. All items are available for purchase or special order.

CraftWear showcases beautiful one-of-a-kind clothing, jewelry and accessories for men, women and children handcrafted by juried League members. You'll marvel at the dazzling selection of traditional and avant-garde jewelry made of gold, silver, beads, pearls, or polymer clay. Select a unique handcrafted wearable and decorative item for a treasured gift or treat yourself. All items are available for purchase or special order.

Sculpture Garden Exhibition
As you stroll through the outdoor sculpture garden, you'll be able to enjoy the form and construction of decorative sculptures, furnishings, fountains, and garden accessories. The exhibition demonstrates how these beautiful pieces can be easily integrated into any garden, lawn, or open-field setting. All items are available for purchase or special order.

The Shop At The Fair
The Shop at the Fair is a cooperative shop operated by members of the League of NH Craftsmen. This tent features work from our craftsmen, many of whom do not have a booth at the Fair. Enjoy shopping for a great variety of craft at this beautifully laid out Shop at the Fair.

As part of the League's education mission, we encourage children and apprentices of juried members to learn about craft. The Next Generation Retail Craft Tent features work from these children — you'll be impressed by their creativity and skill levels.
