The 20th annual Celebration of Craft was held Saturday, a light snow not dampening the spirits of hundreds of art and craft fans who drove over to the Appalachian Center for Craft, for the event. The free event was an open house for Tennessee Tech’s Appalachian Center for Craft, located on the bluffs above Center Hill Lake near Hurricane Bridge. Visitors were treated to a day full of demonstrations ranging from glass blowing and blacksmithing to pottery-making and sewing.
