The exhibition demonstrates that consumers can keep it local when solving their personal or professional design challenges. “This exhibit highlights examples of local producers engaging in design thinking and craft manufacturing. Their creative output is beautiful, but also illustrates their potential to grow into business that impact the economy in meaningful ways,” said Director of the Craft Business Accelerator Adam Kenney.
