The Waverly Community House, 1115 North Abington Road, will host its 37th Annual Artisans’ Marketplace, sponsored by Toyota of Scranton and the Waverly General Store, on Saturday and Sunday, Nov. 23-24.
The Artisans’ Marketplace showcases area artisans and craftspeople who will offer high-quality, handmade, one-of-a-kind items just in time for the holidays.
The Artisans’ Marketplace has become a show that attracts some of the region’s most talented artisans. The process of selection is rigorous. All submissions undergo a jury process in order to ensure fellow artisans and visitors a high quality of craftsmanship and presentation. The committee searches for applicants who display unique talent, originality and great skill and expertise in their medium. The committee also attempts to choose a variety of vendors to balance the overall show. All work is original and includes a variety of forms and mediums including photography, painting, ceramic, jewelry design, basketry, glass, sculpture, textiles, wood and more. Patrons of the show have a wonderful opportunity to view and purchase original art.
