One of several takeaways from this year’s Waterford Fair was enthusiasm among participating artisans to help establish a school for heritage crafts in the village.
The program is expected to build on last year’s inaugural craft instruction classes.
“We hope to hold between four and six craft weekends next year, depending on teacher availability,” foundation Executive Director Tom Kuehhas said. The idea of a permanent craft school has been building for several years, in part as a way to use the numerous buildings owned by the Waterford Foundation. Kuehhas said the response from this year’s crafts demonstrators—many of whom have been participating at Waterford for years—to teach the classes has been enthusiastic.
