KINGSTON, Jamaica — Nearly 30 craft producers are expected to showcase their handmade and unique items at the Kingston leg of the Tourism Product Development Company Limited (TPDCO) Craft Fair.

Guided by the theme “Craft your Desires”, the event is scheduled for Friday, December 15 at the Ministry of Tourism Breezeway in New Kingston.

The staging of the fair was designed specifically by the craft unit of the organisation to highlight the work of local craft producers, giving attendees a sample of the diverse offerings within the craft industry.

The outdoor setting will facilitate interactions between the craft producers and local and international buyers who will also gain extensive information about the craft industry and its significance to the tourism sector.

These include destination promotion and improving the Jamaican brand image, job creation and economic investment.

Patrons will be able to view and purchase items from expert craft producers as well as trainees from a recent session in calabash, tie-dye and stone and bottle painting. Other product offerings will include straw products, ceramics, and jewellery. Entertainment will be provided by the one man band- Dennisford Salmon.
