A lot of people know about the Corning Museum of Glass and that you can make an appointment to learn how to blow glass. You can choose a Christmas ornament in the winter and a pumpkin in the fall. But not a lot of people know about the Rochester Folk Art Guild.
Their Mission Statement is: To offer support and nourishment to all who are searching for a more conscious, creative, and responsible way of living.
Their home is in Middlesex County and has been for over 50 years. There are resident artists and many more that join them in the mission.
Throughout the year they provide opportunities to purchase their art at local craft fairs of course, but they also host workshops for all ages focused on farming, pottery, and other crafts.
What fun! Check them out next time you are looking for something interesting to do on the weekend or when visiting the Finger Lakes.
