St. Luke’s Episcopal Church, 1000 State University Drive, Fort Valley, GA 31030, proudly announces its exciting new initiative, The Community Arts & Crafts Collective.
The African-American Heritage Month kick-off, Saturday, February 2, 2019, under the direction of Fort Valley native, Eva Henderson, will begin a series of free, twice-monthly, 2 one-hour classes taught by volunteer crafters and artisans.
Classes will include: knitting, crocheting, quilting, doll making, paper crafting, sewing, jewelry making, soap making, sewing, etc. Some classes will be 1 session “make ‘n takes,” others will be longer projects.
Ms. Henderson stated, “Our purpose is to enrich, empower and encourage our community by teaching and reviving dying skills taught by underutilized crafters.” She added, “We also want to promote unity and to generate extra income for crafters and our historic church. We especially welcome youth and participants of all skill levels.”
Students will be asked to provide their own supplies from lists determined by the instructors, unless otherwise stated. Donations of cash and materials will be gratefully accepted.
