History & Mission


Hawai'i Craftsmen was founded in 1966 as a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting fine craft in the art community of Hawai'i. We function through the help of our dedicated board members who contribute on a volunteer basis. Through our long established series of programs and events, we aim to bring craftspeople of all ages and skill levels together to learn and share the benefits of creating. Our members work in a variety of mediums, including, but not limited to, clay, metal, fiber, wood and mixed media. Membership benefits include special rates on workshops and entry fees for exhibits.

Hawai‘i Craftsmen celebrates fine craft as a vital and enriching part of contemporary life and supports the creative growth of our member artists and the education of the general public to their value.


We achieve our mission through 

•  Increasing public awareness and appreciation of fine craft through community outreach 
•  Providing opportunities for continuing education and regular exhibition of member work 
•  Sustaining a statewide community of craft artists by providing venues for shared experiences and communication 
•  Promoting the organization and its members  in Hawai'i, Nationally and Internationally.
