How do you make that? Can you show me how?
Penn’s Colony is the place where questions are asked and experiences begin. Throughout the Festival, the majority of artisans demonstrate and talk about some aspect of their craft. One reason is to show you how to spot quality in handmade work. Another reason is to inspire you to become an artist, too.
