Several members of the newly formed Route 7 Artisan Fellowship recently attended the 2015 Brushy Fork Institute training held at Berea College.
Bonita Adams, Delana Banks and Timothy Hudson attended the AIR Arts Incubator workshop; Wanda L. Whitehead attended the Ordinary Committees Achieving Extra Ordinary Results training, and Libby Smith took the Becoming a Trail Town workshop.
Fellowship members thanked those who donated items and time to help the group pay for tuition, room and board, and gas to attend the workshops.
The members say they are hoping to learn all they can to help bring an artisan center to the Route 7 area to promote all forms of art for those who live in the Blackey and surrounding areas of eastern Kentucky.
The group is looking for local artists who want to promote and sell their work locally and on the Internet.
