Art Happens on Tarboro, joining more than 200 retailers and art institutions nationwide in celebration of American Craft, will be hosting workshops and demos Oct. 2-11.
Open to the general public during these workshops at 106 Tarboro St., this American Craft Week will feature jewelry classes, stained glass classes, mixed media classes and various demos.
American Craft Week, now in its 11th year, is an annual coast-to-coast recognition of the makers, retailers, collectors and exhibitors of handmade craft. “We’re passionate about the exceptional value, enduring quality and cultural significance of handmade American craft,” said Diane Sulg, co-chair of the campaign. “In a society filled with machine-made things, we need to support the talented and dedicated people who create decorative and useful goods by hand.”
