Presenting Original Fine Art & Handmade Craft Since 1996
Art / Craft Demos @ JOLAF! Fiber Artist Carol Rak

For generations people have been fascinated by watching master artisans create distinctive works of art from seemingly simple materials. One of the most popular traditions at arts & crafts festivals is the "demonstration area", where exhibitors enchant young and old alike through the virtuosity of their hands.
