Art Happens on Tarboro, joining more than 200 retailers and art institutions nationwide in celebration of American Craft, will be hosting workshops and demos October 2-11, 2020
Open to the general public during these workshops at 106 Tarboro Street Wilson NC, 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”, says 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.”
Art Happens on Tarboro supports American Craft Week because public awareness of the local crafts scene helps sustain jobs for artists and their businesses. There is a local return on that investment: in many towns, the arts help promote economic development and tourism. Art Happens on Tarboro is a multiple arts and crafts gallery and teaching space.
