Crowds check out items on display at the annual Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival Feb. 16-17.
DUNEDIN - The 21st annual Downtown Dunedin Craft Festival provides a showcase for the work of the country’s leading crafters on Saturday and Sunday, Feb. 16-17 along Main Street in downtown Dunedin.

A wide variety of unique and affordable crafts will be on display and available for sale with prices ranging from as little as $3 to $3,000.

Dunedin has a decidedly small town image, but it packs the punch of a bustling city with 37,000 residents. It’s clear why Howard Alan Events and American Craft Endeavors – organizers of this annual event – chose Dunedin. One of the oldest towns on the Florida’s West Coast, it has a wooded and subtropical setting with almost four miles of picturesque waterfront, a relaxed lifestyle and activities for all likes and ages, making Dunedin a truly delightful place to live or visit.

Attendees will have an opportunity to meet some of the country's finest artists and crafters with products handmade in America. Ceramic planters, functional pottery, hair accessories, handmade one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces and an expansive Green Market will offer something for every taste and budget.

To ensure an exceptional event with quality affordable original crafts, all of the local and national crafters have been hand-selected from hundreds of applicants by American Craft Endeavors, a producer of craft fairs throughout the country. All of the crafters will be on site for the duration of the festival available to discuss their art and inspiration.

For more information, visit www.artfestival.com, e-mail info@artfestival.com or call 954-472-3755.

Among the crafters scheduled to participate in this year’s festival are Zack Marksz and Katherine Weisinger.

Marksz, a fine jewelry crafter, maintains sustainable practices by getting his silver from Hoover and Strong, which provides 100 percent recycled material. Zack's father has been a full-time professional silversmith and jewelry artisan since the late 1960s and he has been apprenticing under him for more than 10 years. He also has gleaned much of his skills from his two uncles and aunt who are also silversmiths and jewelry artisans that apprenticed under his father.

Weisinger uses real flowers and leaves in her jewelry. They are protected from fading by enriching the original color. Each petal and leaf is delicately hand-painted using lacquer, 24-karat gold and sterling silver for results that are simply stunning.
