The UU Handcrafted Bazaar, hosted by First Unitarian Universalist Church, is a long standing community event celebrating the creativity of the community!  Artisans and crafters from Rochester and the surrounding area are invited to share their works with the community through an artisan market, that used to be inside the church prior to Christmas, but is now held the first days in October, in the lower parking lot of First Unitarian Universalist Church, with room to host 50 or more local artists, a few food trucks, and lots of COMMUNITY!!

At the First Unitarian Universalist Church, we affirm to promote the inherent worth and dignity of all people,  and welcome that diversity at our artisan market!

Clover & Rose

After teaching middle school art for 7 years I decided it was time to focus on my art career. For the past 3 years I have been exploring my media of choice. I have discovered that I am a Jill of all trades. I love creating fine art but I also love creating in all forms. I have started making Jewelry, and creating embroidery pieces. Clover & Rose is a space that pulls all of these loves together into one shop with a feminine style and modern minimalist twist. Find more information HERE.
