Today we’d like to introduce you to Bitchcraft Winter Faire.
Every artist has a unique story. Can you briefly walk us through yours?
Bitchcraft was born under a full moon in 2008. Four Witchy ladies came together to give birth to a creative movement not yet seen in the Craft Faire world. Loving everything dark & magical they curated a select group of like-minded makers and started a series of craft fairs filled with metal, crystals, magic altars, cape-wearing, wand making, magic adornments, blacksmithing, woodworking, silversmithing, and anything else related to other-worldly realms of the occult.
Since then, Bitchcraft has evolved into a local tradition where badass makers and curators come together to collaborate and sell wares to the occult-loving community around us. This year is our eleventh annual Winter Faire event, and we couldn’t be more proud of being at the heart of this decade-long adventure.
Please tell us about your art.
We are a group of creative women that integrate our love for all things occult and spiritual into our everyday lives. Our core team consists of a ritual artifact designer, a fine art and events producer, amateur wood/metal worker and a handcrafted jewelry designer, but we’d like to shine the spotlight on our community more than deep diving into our individual crafts. Check out our Bitchcraft Collective Directory at bitchcraftla.com or follow us on social media to learn more about each of our vendor community.
If you come, check out one of our events we hope you walk away with a sense of excitement, unity and creative energy (and some kickass swag created by a local artist)!
Choosing a creative or artistic path comes with many financial challenges. Any advice for those struggling to focus on their artwork due to financial concerns?
Make weird shit and support each other! Haha but seriously, there are always people in our communities that vibe with our unique creative aesthetics, and when we find each other and build a movement we make something truly magical.
How or where can people see your work? How can people support your work?
We have our core event every year in December and hold smaller events throughout the year. This year’s event is Saturday, December 7th at “The Garage” on Broadway (1001 N Broadway, Los Angeles, CA 90012). Keep an eye on our Facebook (@btchcrafttradingpost) and Instagram (@bitchcraftla) to see what we are up to, and stop by one of our events or support any of the artists in our community if you’d like to get involved!
