The Holiday Festival Mini Workshops are sponsored by the Friends of the Appalachian Center for Craft, and the proceeds from the mini workshops will go to support FACCT’s Educational Outreach Programs. The Outreach Program enables 4th through 12th grade students to come to the Craft Center for a day of hands-on classes and demonstrations.
Workshops are $20 each and registration starts at 9:30 a.m. the day of the class in the lobby of the Craft Center's administration building. Workshops begin at 10 a.m. Cash, check, Visa and MasterCard are accepted. No experience is necessary, and all materials are included in the cost of the workshops. Seating is limited.
GLASS BEADS: Only Offered on Friday and Saturday.
We make beads by holding glass rods over a flame then gently winding the molten glass over the mandrels. Make a necklace and earrings. (14 year olds and above.)
- 10:00 am to 12:00 pm
- 12:00 pm to 2:00 pm
- 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm
MARBLING: Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Bring home a beautiful scarf for yourself, or give a handmade present to a friend. Marbling involves submerging ink paintings in water and preserving the floating ink. Detailed combed and flowing designs are captured by using thickened water. Any age welcomed.
Class times: Continuous – first come, first served – like a bakery, get a number and come and watch how it is done until your number is called. (Or shop, eat, and watch demos until your number is called.)
REDBUD CAFE: SPECIAL HOLIDAY MENU
Every year, the cafe puts together a special holiday menu just for this event!
This year's menu ranges from appetizers of hummus, flatbread and pesto veggies to entrees of burgandy pot roast with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans and homemade carrot cake dessert. Salads, sandwhiches, and wraps also available with options like roasted beet & corn salad and shrimp ceasar wraps.
