Asian American Craftswomen
For many years we had a dream to create an event that featured the work of Asian American craftswomen and also supported nonprofit organizations in the community. In 2012 this dream became a reality when Lora Jo Foo hosted a highly successful fair at her Oakland home, along with eight other Asian American women artists.
2018 marked the seventh Asian American Craftswomen Holiday Crafts Fair. This event benefited Asian Immigrant Women Advocates (AIWA). We were honored to support AIWA, which has a long and successful history of empowering low-income women and youth.
We hope to return soon for an eighth fair and to provide the unique fusion of the feminine and Asian and Western sensibilities that is distinctive to the artwork of Asian American Craftswomen.
