The Center for Living and Learning has announced the 2019 Christmas Craft Show will be held Dec. 11 and 12 from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. both days.
The craft show is open to the public and features items available for purchase made by participants in The Center’s Vocational Rehabilitation Program and other local artists. All proceeds go to support The Center.
The Vocational Rehabilitation Program assists those with disabilities in gaining job skills, confidence and eventually finding meaningful employment in the community.
With the support of local potter Charlie Akin and art therapist Cindy Birdsong, The Center uses art therapy as one of the programs to help each trainee express themselves through a variety of mediums and allows the trainees to design unique arts and crafts throughout the year.
The many crafts and arts include, but are not limited to, holiday bread, nature portraits, handmade clay pottery, figurines, coffee mugs, homemade soap, soap dishes, candle holders, dried fruit and nut trail mix, jewelry and various artwork by local artists.
The Center for Living and Learning is located at 1979 Old Hillsboro Rd. in Franklin, approximately a half mile south of the Old Hillsboro Road and New Highway 96 intersection.
