We are joining the fun and learning of our country’s largest celebration of hand-made in America, in Tennessee, in Franklin County!
American Crafts Week and Tennessee Craft Week, October 7-16, 2016 is a collection of craft events and happenings across the country and state each October. The purpose is to connect and celebrate craft artists, the work they create and the businesses that support them. By focusing attention on many craft events in a short time, we shine a spotlight on the collective impact that craft has on our culture, community and economy.
The Franklin County Arts Guild will Celebrate Tennessee Crafts Week with a series craft demonstrations and crafts making activities at the Artisan Depot in Cowan Tennessee. Three members of the Franklin County Arts Guild/Artisan Depot Gallery will be offering demonstrations:
October 8, 12-3 pm, Ken Gould, Blacksmith, will be demonstrating the art of chase and repousse on metal.
October 15, 12-2 pm, Alida Morgan, will demonstrate Puppet Dolls.
October 15, 2-4 pm, Margie Gallagher will invite visitors to create Fairy Dish Gardens.
The “Animals with an Attitude” Community Show will also be on exhibit during Craft Week. So don’t forget to be working on your submissions to it.
The Artisan Depot is operated by the Franklin County Arts Guild and is located at 204 Cumberland St. East in Cowan, TN. Gallery hours are 12 pm to 5 pm on Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays and 11 am to 5 pm on Saturdays.
