Artisans Reveal the Mysteries of Their Craft
Trade Secrets: Artisans Reveal the Mysteries of their Craft has been extended to run through Sunday, January 26, 2003.
At the core of The Trade Secrets Exhibit is a twenty-five year retrospective of a decorative arts company featuring painted furniture, wall coverings, restoration and gilding. Other artisans and craftsmen whose work is associated with the construction and embellishment of the house have also set up exhibits with works in progress. Stained glass artists, wood turners, metal workers, architectural tile makers, weavers and furniture makers have provided information on the history of their craft as well as revealed a written "trade secret," a little known fact about their craft, which you, the visitor, may take with you.
Many of these artisans' work such as lamps, baskets, furniture, screens, weavings and gifts.
are featured in the Museum Shop
Many of these artisans will be offering workshops at CHIMNEYSTACK,The Chapel Hill Museum School of Traditional Arts Crafts and Culture (CHMSTACC). Please join us February 1, 2003 from1PM to 3PM for the grand opening of this exciting school and have an opportunity to meet you mentor. Cider, cookies and a little fiddlin' will be provided.
