“From enhancing your dining room table to having an accent piece to accompany your outfit, the artisans at the Hagley Craft Fair have items that dazzle and decorate” says Event Coordinator Bonnie Wirth. Scott Gold will showcase his hand-carved, wood bowls, which are also food safe. Silver jewelry crafted by metal smith Pat Henriques is “made to be worn!” Book Artist Meg Kennedy creates journals, sketch books, albums, and more using fine papers from around the world. Some artisans will be demonstrating their trades during the Craft Fair.
The weekend festivities include a raffle of items donated by each artisan. Each visitor will have the opportunity to win as a benefit of coming to the Craft Fair. Shoppers will receive additional raffle tickets with each purchase.
