The 42nd annual ArtWorks Holiday Crafts Fair at the West Side YMCA (5 West 63rd) will only be back this year for three days: Thursday – Saturday the 9th, 10th and 11th of December.

23 students, assistants and teachers from this long-standing community art program will be selling their unique ceramic pieces and handmade jewelry. Twenty percent of all revenue will go back to the program to fund ArtWorks Studio supplies.

“The ArtWorks Pottery Studio has been around for over 40 years, and the potters were instrumental in getting the Y’s to reinstate their pottery classes as the city slowly began to reopen,” explained Julann Gebbie, an ArtWorks volunteer. “We are working to return to our pre-covid offering, and Artworks looks forward to offering more classes in the new year.” It has previously offered courses in stained glass, drawing, watercolor and pearls.

There will be an opening reception for the Holiday Crafts Fair on Thursday, December 9 from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm. You can meet the artists, learn about their craft and discover what upcoming ArtWorks classes will be offered in the new year. The event is FOR FREE to the public. Evidence of vaccination and masks is required.

Schedule for events:

Thursday, December 9: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m .; Opening reception: 17.30 to 20.00
Friday, December 10: 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Saturday, December 11: 9:00 to 15:00

Proof of vaccination and masks required
