ORIENTATION: 5:00pm. We will gather in our private meeting room and begin with introductions.

Berea is proud to be recognized as the "Folk Arts and Crafts Capital of Kentucky" attracting thousands of visitors annually. This new Intergenerational program is somewhat different from others you may have attended in that you will have opportunities to work in very small groups with outstanding craft-persons who will give you personalized attention. We will have non-crafts activities and meals as a group so you can meet new people and make new friends.
The focus of the program is working on several craft projects with artists and artisans in Berea’s Old Town Craft Village. The preparatory materials included a form for you to select your preferred crafts and we will do our best to match everyone with the crafts of their choice. Some crafts will have very few spaces and others more depending on what is involved and how the craft-person prefers to work. At the end of the program, you will have something special to take home with you.
