Self Made: A Makers Collective brings together the top craftspeople and artisans in the Hudson Valley and surrounding areas for a one-day marketplace.
The day features 50+ vendors, some which include fashion and jewelry designers, leatherworkers, metalsmiths, apothecaries, natural beauty makers and more. Our vendors have earned the distinction of being recognized as inspirational figures within the handmade movement for demonstrating a level of savviness and skillset that has raised the bar of excellence in the Made-in-America circle. The event also showcases a number of promising up and comers, local food trucks, and music. We’re excited to introduce the public to new faces while also hosting some OG industry favorites.
This year Self Made will be held at the historic University Settlement Camp, located at the base of Mount Beacon in Beacon, NY. Beacon has seen a resurgence in the last decade. A “popular weekend getaway” according to Conde Nast Traveler, it has a tightknit community that’s eager to support the entrepreneurship and innovation taking place in the small city. People love to take part of the internationally renowned art scene, hike the mountain and visit other landmark places such as Bannerman Castle and the Hudson River. While it’s home to a Second Saturday, an impressive farmer’s market, and Jazz Festival, an event of this magnitude has never taken place. We look forward to bringing Self Made to the city and hope you want to join us!
