Exceptional examples of traditional crafts are created on-site at the Living Traditions Festival by masters of their respective art forms. These craft artists have acquired the skills and techniques that are passed down through generations or learned through apprenticeships. Artists often share the history of the art form, as well as how they became interested in it. The traditional materials and techniques are part of the story as well. Many of the Living Traditions craft demonstrators have been recognized with awards for excellence.
