Haywood Community College second year professional craft students will participate in the Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands October 20 through 22 at the US Cellular Center in Asheville. The College’s student club, Haywood Studios, has participated as an educational member for over 20 years.
In its 70th year, the Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands exhibits a variety of craft ranging from contemporary to traditional in works of clay, wood, metal, glass, fiber, natural materials, paper, leather, mixed media and jewelry.
Approximately 24 second-year Professional Crafts students in clay, fiber, jewelry and wood will participate. Students set up a booth along with 170 other vendors, staff the show and sell the artwork they have been making in the program. This is a valuable opportunity for students to experience real-life marketing and sales.
Show hours Friday, October 20 and Saturday, October 21 are 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and Sunday, October 22 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. This event is open to the public. Tickets are $8 at the door.
