Concord's newest Fine Craft Show offers a unique selection of quality, locally hand-made goods at affordable prices and the opportunity to share a thoughtful gift made in New Hampshire. Crafts at the Capitol features a select group of artists, many who are juried members of the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen.  

Shop Local. Shop Quality. Shop Crafts at the Capitol. This fine craft show has something for everyone on your list. Wearable art includes jewelry crafted from silver, glass, wool, and paper; scarves, and hand weaving. Home goods include a selection of pottery, glass ware, iron work, photography, and pewter. There will be collectible teddy bears, works on paper, and gifts for children, of any age! 

Crafts at the Capitol is the creation of Henniker glass artist, Gigi Laberge. Laberge wanted to have a fine quality craft show during the holidays, "a special show featuring the finest of crafts, at affordable prices." Encouraged by a newspaper article explaining the economic value to the community by shopping local, she decided this was the year to, "make it happen." Knowing the Capitol Center for the Arts as a wonderful venue to showcase talent, Laberge rented space at the downtown Concord landmark. Next, she invited a select group of her favorite artists to join her. The artwork this group creates amazes me; I want to buy something from every artist here," Laberge says. "For me, this started as a way to share my work with my friends in Concord, then as way to share the work of other artists, and now, well now it has a life of its own!" 

"Crafts at the Capitol is more than a craft show," Laberge says, "it's a showcase of talent, spirit, and community. It's awesome; it's an event not to be missed.
