DIY Crafts in North America have never had it so good. Usually the term refers to goods that have an unpolished 'handcrafted' aesthetic. On April 25th & 26th, on the 2nd floor of the historic Gladstone Hotel, the MADE Show (Modern Art Design Exhibit) is bringing DIY Crafting to another level. The 4th MADE is a free weekend event showcasing hand-crafted works that have been carefully planned, and executed with a polish and precision that is indicative of a high end product.
