With the arrival of thousands of works of handmade fine craft, set-up is complete for the 35th Annual Holiday Exhibition and Sale at Brookfield Craft Center. More than 100 talented craft artists from across North America have provided beautiful new work for this year’s event.
This year’s event includes unique, one-of-a-kind work by dozens of artists new to the exhibition, as well as new work by returning artists. According to Richard Herrmann, Executive Director, “In line with our mission of teaching and promoting fine craft, every purchase provides significant support for the Craft Center’s educational programs, as well as income to the artist who made the work.”
In this class, students come prepared with ideas on what they would like to pursue. Lisa Scroggins will look at your sketches or talk to you about your ideas to help you. This class has an open studio feel, as projects are student-driven.
