In 1897 the Society of Arts + Crafts was founded to preserve, perfect and promote the spirit of handmade craft. We continue this mission today by providing a platform for craft practitioners who challenge mass production with their art. The Society's Seaport space hosts a gallery of rotating exhibitions and a retail shop featuring work from 200+ artists. We also host several craft-related programs throughout the year in our galleries. Additionally, the Society presents CraftBoston, the Northeast's premier show of fine craft, twice a year. The Society also offers its gallery for rentals and other private events.
