Hands On Gatlinburg

Plan a trip to White Oak Lodge and Resort in April and you might just take home a piece of art crafted by the finest artist around…you!

The 2016 Hands On Gatlinburg Arts & Crafts Weekend April 8-10 provides arts and crafts lovers the opportunity to own a beautifully crafted piece of artwork made with your very own hands.

An abundance of do-it-yourself style classwork will be offered, from knitting to pastels, painting, jewelry-making, watercolor, scarf-making, weaving, pottery, crochet, woodworking, soap-making and much more. Festivalgoers can keep the items they make and place them alongside their other coveted works of art. -Gatlinburg.com
