Craft-lovers converge this weekend (June 2-3, from 11am-6pm) for the 14th Indie Craft Experience (ICE) at the Ambient Plus Studio on the Southside of Atlanta. A juried selection of over 80 Southeastern artists (including the likes of Concrete Lace letterpress, Beautiful Briny Sea small-batch culinary salts, and Ivey & Me Apparel) will come bearing their wares for a celebration of all things handmade.

An admission fee of $5 gets you into the fair where you can shop, dine, and even create something yourself during a craft competition sponsored by the Atlanta Institute of Stitches & Crafts (with a $5 supply fee). Unleash your inner artist when you’re given raw materials and a set amount of time to make something fabulous in a Top Chef-meets Etsy-type challenge.

Adding to the experience will be fresh fare from the Good Food Truck and King of Pops. Make sure to step into the Art Swap and lounge for a refresher. In the chic space, decorated with the vintage finds of local stylist Blue Eyed Yonder, enjoy a cocktail or find treasure in someone’s trash as part of the Art Swap.

Good food, colorful art, and inspiration abound—it’s Pinterest brought to life. Come one, come all, shop and spur on your own creativity at one of the biggest craft experiences in the South.
