As collaborators, the Philadelphia Art Alliance and the Crafts Council of West Bengal are excited to offer our members and community, the opportunity to participate in a once-in-a-lifetime shopping experience.

For three days only, the Crafts Council of West Bengal will set up shop at the PAA to offer products for sale. Come join us to shop a diverse selection of beautiful handcrafted and unique items.

There will also be three craftsmen, demonstrating various methods of their craft - a traditional potter, who will demonstrate on his wheel (not an electric wheel); a President's awardee embroiderer will demonstrate her skill of Quilt embroidery of Bengal; and a jeweler who makes copper and silver jewelry. Discouraging machine made articles, the group focuses on only handloom, handspun, and handwoven textile and craft.

We hope you will join us for this exciting event!
