Spring Craft Demonstrations
Most of the Exhibitors at the Crozet Spring Arts and Crafts Festival will happily tell you about how they create their unique fine art and craft works – that is one of the big benefits of meeting and purchasing directly from the Artist! – and a few even bring their studios along to the show! Be sure to stop by these demonstration booths to get a first-hand look at how the craft is done!
Joyful Adornments Mobile Glass Studio will be demonstrating how glass beads are made. Watch as Bonnie magically transforms molten glass into delightful one-of-a-kind beads and buttons at a 3000º torch. Ask questions about the process as you watch how gravity, heat and creativity blend to bring a bead to life! It’s fun and educational all at the same time! Demonstration times will happen throughout the weekend and be listed on a billboard near the Mobile Studio.
Meg West, Crozet plein-aire painter, will demonstrate landscape painting in booth 409 in the Festival Tent. Meg West paints as a localist, focusing her painting in Albemarle and surrounding Counties, as well as Skyline Drive and The Blue Ridge Parkway. Meg paints every day and enjoys the rhythm and momentum that comes with a steady flow of painting. The act of painting is what is important – enjoying the feeling of being connected to the environment, herself and the painting.
