We are also collaborating with the Appalachian Artisan Center to put together an art show we are calling "Common Threads". This intergenerational gallery show will feature pieces handcrafted by 6th thru 12th grade students enrolled in our virtual embroidery and knitting & crocheting classes as well as work from local and regional fiber artists. Common Threads is on display at the Appalachian Artisan Center from April 30th thru May 22nd.
Our Pick & Bow variety show will be broadcast live on the Hindman Settlement School Facebook page at 5pm on April 28th. For the past 12 weeks, students from Knott and surrounding counties have been learning how to play the fiddle, banjo, mandolin, guitar, dulcimer, and ukulele. Come cheer them on and help us celebrate everything they've accomplished this semester!
