Published 9:53am Wednesday, December 5, 2012

Are you looking for unique handcrafted items as a special holiday gift?
Tryon Arts and Crafts gift shop and gallery has many choices of art from local artisans.
The combination of several media featured in the craft classes and newer pieces from the artists associated with the center are now on display until Dec. 22.
Tryon prides itself by having a creative craft center located at Harmon Field that offers classes and workshops throughout the year.
Many of the students of those classes have produced unusual pieces seen in the yearly Holiday Gift Show and in the gift shop.
Other pieces are made by professional artisans whose work is well known to the community through their participation in the Fall Craft Fair and in various shows specializing in media such as wood carving, fused glass, forged iron, weaving and pottery. Also represented are numerous jewelry pieces, original in design and surprisingly affordable.
Tryon Arts and Crafts will be participating in the Christmas Stroll on Friday evening, Dec. 7. There will be a display of many pieces from the gift shop and the gallery show at the Shops of Tryon.
The stroll hours are from 5-8 p.m.
The gift shop hours have been extended on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Normal hours for Tryon Arts and Crafts are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays.
Tryon Arts and Crafts School is a non-profit crafts organization located at 373 Harmon Field Road in Tryon and exists to provide creative opportunities for everyone.
