The Folk Art Guild Presents its

Annual Festival of Crafts in Syracuse

October 28-30, 2016

The Folk Art Guild will present its annual Festival of Crafts in Syracuse on October 28, 29 and 30th at the DeWitt Community Church, 3600 Erie Boulevard East, across from Shoppingtown. Friday and Saturday the hours are 10 – 5, and Sunday from 11 – 4. Admission is FREE! There is plenty of free parking.

The Folk Art Guild has been making fine handicrafts for over 50 years, supporting locally sourced materials and makers with traditions in clay, wood and textiles. The shelves will be full of unique hand made items including turned bowls, natural fibers and clothing, folk toys and artisanal pottery.  Visitors will be entertained with live music and demonstrations by the artists themselves.

The Guild artisans have been working diligently throughout the year to bring you the some of the best folk crafts. Revel in the beautiful patterns of end grain cutting boards.  Hand carved kitchen wares, including spoons and salad servers will also be available over the course of the weekend. The woodworking display is enhanced by an impressive collection of oriental rugs from Afghanistan, India, Pakistan, and Iran.

Peruse the new wood fired ceramics from the Folk Art Guild potters. A true labor of love, these pots were fired for over 24 hours with locally harvested wood, and constant attention.  Toasty reds and oranges dance on the surface of these wares as evidence of flame and ash. Brilliant and colorful glazes liven the teapots and berry bowls, and as always you can find the traditional leaf ware with native plants from the Finger Lakes region.

The Weavers are preparing a wardrobe to keep you warm this season, including colorful ponchos, shawls, and scarves. Weaving row by row on beautiful wooden looms, the artists work with merino wool, bamboo, alpaca, silk and cotton.

In addition to crafts, the Guild will once again present an array of books, including a variety of children’s books, as well as myriad books on spirituality, art, and of course, cooking. So grab something for your sweetie and show them how much you care by giving the gift of hand made this holiday season.
