Hands On Craft Lessons

 

We have all visited the Gatlinburg Craft rout, have you ever wished you could learn how to do a specific craft? One of the many things we are world famous for is our Arts and Crafts Community. Millions from around the globe have come to see our Appalachian arts and skills as demonstrated by descendents and students of the original artists and crafters in the area, and more than a few have watched and said to themselves, “Man, I wish I could learn to do that!”

 

Well, with Hands-On Gatlinburg coming up between April 7th and April 9th in 2017, you can! This weekend, many of the storeowners and artists in our Arts and Crafts Community will be holding workshop classes that teach you the same things they learned when they became professionals.
