Making T-Shirts at the Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen’s MakersFest

The Pennsylvania Guild of Craftsmen will host the second annual MAKERSfest on the 300 block of N. Queen St. on Sunday, June 14 from 10 am to 4 pm. This street festival celebrates the beauty of a finished object, as well as the act of making. The Guild invites everyone to come for the day, to start making craft, to acquire a piece from a master craftsman, and revel in the creative expression of music, food, art, craft, and more.

The event features 30 craftsmen, live music, food trucks, and hands-on activities for all ages that focus on the artistry and ingenuity of making. All the craft on display is the inspired work of the craftsmen in the booth, ranging from ceramics to jewelry, handmade clothing, weaving, artisan furniture, functional objects, and more.
