A 36-piece exhibit, featuring 19 students continues the historical relationship between the Southern Highland Craft Guild and Haywood, an educational center member of the Guild.
This year’s class is representing works from clay, fiber, jewelry and wood mediums. The main gallery of the Folk Art Center is adorned with handwoven wearables, decorative dinnerware, wooden hutches, soon to be heirlooms for one’s home. Students of the Haywood program come from all over, with or without prior experience of craft, and sometimes pursuing it as a second or third career. The course of study is challenging, combining craft concentrations with supplemental classes in design, drawing, craft history, business, marketing and photography.
