Following last year’s successful presentation of craft in context, “Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft,” this year’s theme is “Let’s Entertain.” Ten Atlanta area designers have partnered with artists to create gorgeous, craft-inspired room vignettes showcasing objects ideally suited for entertaining. Launching this year is the American Craft Charm Collection, an exclusive handmade assortment of charms, charm bracelets, cluster pendants and pins designed by talented American Craft Council jewelry artists. Also new this year, party and show-goers will enjoy a Scotch whisky tasting presented by The Balvenie, the world’s most handcrafted single malt Scotch whisky. Tastings will take place in a space artfully created by Atlanta’s award-winning Peace Design.
