CANCELLED. The event may be rescheduled to be held in May. There was a terrific bunch of local artisans with wonderful things for sale but due to the health advisories it is recommended to stay home. This fair has an assortment of local area artists with items made of wood, stone, fiber and other natural materials, recycled materials or creative repurposed materials. Nature art is also welcome.

It's the 12th year for the fair. Possible workshops may be added on green art. If you want to host a make and take opportunity for shoppers let me know. I may either have an area in the room for workshops or do a map of the Make and Take booths.
