Handmade Arcade Giveaway

Handmade Arcade 11You might want to hold off on shopping for typical winter apparel and decor this season. Pittsburgh’s first and largest indie-craft market, Handmade Arcade, will open its doors on Dec. 6 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center from 11:00AM to 7:00PM. Once again, you can purchase a plethora of homemade crafts and artwork made exclusively by participating vendors. Attendees will also have multiple purchase opportunities on items such as housewares, artwork and illustrations, jewelry, organic bath and body products, clothing and toys, among other things. Over 150 vendors will exhibit their handmade, locally produced goods this year, integrating up-cycled, sustainable, locally-sourced and eco-friendly materials and techniques. Items typically range from $1 to $100, making it easier not to burn holes in your nice pockets. Handmade Arcade 12

Handmade Arcade hosts multiple opportunities to engage within the creative community, while creating artwork of your own. Besides having a chance to go on an early, budget-friendly holiday shopping spree, guests can take part in a myriad of activities happening throughout the day. You can create screen print pennants, compete in a wood stacking competition, construct superhero masks, make chromatography snowflakes, design band logos and album covers, take selfies in a Winter Wonderland photo booth, help build interactive art installations, create music and sound loops, design note cards, construct flower puffs out of recycled items, and even pose for a caricature.

If spectating is more your thing, there are also many performances to watch. You can catch Continuum Dance Theater give pop-up performances, or track the 10-foot tall dancing puppet, led by puppeteer Mike Mascaro, as it hops around the center. You can also tap your toes to a number of musical guests. This year’s DJs are Pandemic, Bad Seed (Greg Langel), and The Garment District.
