This December, Root Division presents the sixth annual Misfit Toy Factory, a one night live art-making event featuring over 40 Bay Area artists. Throughout the evening, artists will be making small sculptures, handmade wares and other giftables on site in Root Division’s gallery. These notable objects range in spectrum with distinct designs and innovative approaches to object-making exceeding what it means to create a conventional “toy.” Each artist-made item will be available for sale as they are completed, ranging in price from $20-60.
Presented alongside this interactive art making, Root Division’s Creative Marketplace features booths from local artists, shops and workshops specializing in Bay Area artist-made goods. This temporary marketplace offers an additional outlet to explore one-of-kind objects and directly support artists and art workers.
Through a combination of live art making and partnerships with artist-driven businesses, this unique night connects visitors to a range of local artists, art makers and business owners.
Please join us and the misfits for a night of mayhem, making and exchange to get your holiday shopping done in style!
Misfit Toy Factory & Creative Marketplace is free, open to the public, and family friendly, including a Creative Station - all ages art activities hosted in our classroom during the 2nd Saturday opening reception.
