Handicraft Artist 

If you are an artist who creates uniquely Japanese handcrafted goods such as origami, carvings, lacquerware, or raku pottery, apply to be our handicraft artist vendor.

In order to receive this classification, JapanFest requires:

  • A photo of your products

  • A summary/explanation of the craft process

Please carefully assess if you qualify as a handicraft artist before applying

This is the new category we have created this year to encourage more handicraft artists to participate in JapanFest and add a greater variety of unique goods. We want people to spread the word so that we can attract more unique Japanese handcrafted goods.

  • The review process may take some time.

  • If you do not qualify, your application fee will be reimbursed, and you can reapply as a regular vendor; however, availability of space is not guaranteed as slots fill up quickly.

  • If you are unsure if you qualify as a handicraft artist, please contact:
