DC Mayor Adrian Fenty has declared April 22-26, 2009 to be Craft Week DC. CraftWeek DC is organized by Washington, DC area artists, galleries, and the James Renwick Alliance to recognize the growing community of artists in the Washington DC area working in ceramics, glass, fiber, metal, and wood.
As part of Craft Week DC, on Saturday, April 25th, from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm, Terasol Artisan Gallery will be holding a Local Artisan Celebration. Terasol features beautiful (and reasonably priced) pottery, wood, textile, copper, and aromatherapy artisan crafts. Join them for discussion of techniques by some of the gallery’s artisans. Refreshments will be served, and shopping opportunities abound. Terasol is located in the Chevy Chase Arcade, 5520 Connecticut Avenue, NW, Washington, DC 20015. Gallery hours: 10am – 6pm Mon – Sat, 11am – 5pm Sunday.
