The Art Riot Crafters Union is looking for a few good artists and crafters… are you ready to Riot? The Art Riot Crafters Union is located in the Uptown/Stockade District of Kingston at 36 John St- the spot right next to Diego’s Taqueria. The space is our hub- The front space is the main storefront, the second room is our gallery and workshop. It is a collective- there are different levels of membership with different opportunities for each including shared advertising, web exposure, classroom space and many others. The workshop will host skill shares, craft nights, material exchanges, classes, and other types of events… there’s always something going on, so check back often! We want to keep it to Hudson Valley artists and crafters, maybe throwing in a NYS guest star now and again. That’s it in a nutshell...
