Press release from the Southern Highland Craft Guild: 

The Southern Highland Craft Guild invites visitors to experience daily craft demonstrations at the Folk Art Center from March through December 2021. Every day from 10am-4pm, two artists of differing medias will explain and demonstrate their craft with informative materials displayed at their booth. These free educational events are open to the public.

Visitors will have the opportunity to purchase a piece from the demonstrators, and walk away with fine craft that came to life by the hands of its maker. Viewers are invited to discuss craft, ask questions, and learn the importance of preserving these practices while visiting the Folk Art Center.

This is a free opportunity provided by the Southern Highland Craft Guild and its volunteering members. For the purpose of shared resources, education, marketing, and conservation of craft, the Guild educates the region and arts community on the importance of craft and its ability to impact the local creative economy.
