Finished with Pride!

Posted by Picasa

If you would have told us three months ago that we would be making tables most likely we would have laughed at you. After three months in the program we have learned a trade that we can be proud of. Making these tables has given us an experince that we will never forget. The time and effort that was put into these tables showed us that when ideas are in your head and you have a project in progress they will come.

Where you can find the Artisans

On the weekends, you can find the Artisans out at markets in the community. On Saturdays you can find us out at Reston Market, at beautiful Lake Anne Plaza. On Sundays you can find us on Capitol Hill at Eastern Market. At these markets you will find us selling fine handcrafted woodwork, such as bookmarks, boxes, business card holders, and other charming accessories. We also do custom projects, so if there is something you would like, but do not see, we will do our very best to make it for you.
