Brushy Creek Arts and Crafts festival prepared for March 19

A raffle will be held at the Brushy Creek Arts and Crafts Festival March 19 for a quilted purple heart wall hanging to raise money for an area girl with a medical condition that has forced her family to spend so much time at the children’s hospital. All proceeds from the raffle will go to the family.

Immediately after approximately 3 yrs offering his hand-forged iron perform at craft demonstrates throughout the south east, James and La’Shanta Barrow of The Bare Blacksmith made a decision they wanted to place their practical experience to do the job and provide artists close to their Matthews property an prospect to exhibit and provide their get the job done in Jefferson County. And so the Brushy Creek Arts and Crafts Competition was born. 

On March 19, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., the pair and 30 or far more regional artists, artisans and craftsmen will open up the next once-a-year festival at its new location at 6637 Highway 80 concerning Wrens and Waynesboro.  

James Barrow reported that this is a juried arts and crafts competition. 

“We are only accepting genuine artisans,” La’Shanta added. “It has to be hand-created, home-developed or household-cooked. We’re not likely to have resale stuff. This is for regional artists and their gains are their personal.”
