A femme-forward platform and community for creatives and entrepreneurs. We are California’s largest women’s craft fair! We offer workshops, events + resources for small businesses to thrive. Our feminist clothing line is available in inclusive sizing which includes our Uterus collection that collects 10% for Planned Parenthood.
Girl Gang Craft came to life in August of 2017 when Phoebe Sherman gathered 15 maker friends to sell their goods in at Luckyduck Cafe in Oakland, CA. The craft fair world was hard to break into, and not to mention expensive. Phoebe wanted to create a place for women creatives to continue exploring and sharing their passion without having to pay an arm and a leg. There was magic in the air that first day, and so Phoebe decided to do it again, and again.
Our mission is to create space + resources for artists and entrepreneurs to THRIVE + create a life of financial freedom doing what they love.
FOUNDER + CREATOR of ggc
Phoebe Sherman was born and raised in the Bay Area and now lives in Salem, MA. She has a BA from UC Santa Cruz in Fine Art and Feminist Studies and runs Girl Gang Craft from her home office. She integrates her 7 years yoga teaching experience with her foundation of intersectional feminism and creativity into her work as a business owner. Her mindfulness practice can be experienced in how she manages projects and her team, and is certain to be sensed in how she teaches classes. When Phoebe is not working you can find her exploring outside, thrifting, or drinking iced coffee.
Since that first day in 2017, Girl Gang Craft has expanded to multiple cities across California. Our Oakland event now fosters 120 artists under one roof. We’ve made a big pivot to create educational content for entrepreneurs including a conference, blog posts, workshops, worksheets, and a podcast focused on creativity, wellness, business and activism for artists and entrepreneurs.
Together we rise. Together we lift up small businesses. Together we fight sexism, racism, and lift each other up.
