art sccMountain Shapes and Colors Art and Craft Fair will be held from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 10, in the Swain Center at Southwestern Community College.

The fair features a variety of arts and crafts, all made by local craftsmen and women from western North Carolina. The program will have the studios open to the public with demonstrations and workshops throughout the day. There will be an opening of the wood and gas kilns during the festival.

SCC Clay Club will be offering two workshops to help raise funds for the club. The first will be a Raku firing workshop. For $10, participants can glaze a pre-thrown pot, and then have SCC Clay Club members fire it for them. The second workshop will feature painting ceramic holiday ornaments for $5. Both workshops are suitable for all ages and work will be ready for pick up by the end of the festival.
