‘Christmas in the Country’ is Nov. 20-22

“Christmas in the Country” began four years ago when four friends and their families talked about hosting a short driving tour in Highland County to showcase unique talents and offer the public an opportunity to visit individual art studios, with an Appalachian art influence.

Dave Waller and his daughter, Brandy, offer a variety of unique metal art work including barn stars and nativity scenes. Dave Waller is a metal worker. The studio is located 5320 Sorg Road, in Hillsboro, off Route 62.

Brenda Bradds and her daughter, D’Anne Sweet, work from a three building area they call Echo Valley Village. Bradds offers a variety of hand painted pottery in the majolica style that is functional and food safe. Sweet will be showcasing her glass garden art and other decorative craft items for the home. The studios are located 4909 Carr Road.

Kara Juillerat works from her home, located 12674 Mound Road in Winchester, where she creates jewelry made from fused glass. Her selections include bracelets, necklaces, rings and earrings, offering one-of-a-kind pieces that are all hand crafted.

Dave and Donna Stafford’s studio is located 1632 S. Taylorsville Road. The “primitive shop” features hand crafted furniture and other yard and household art. They also sell a variety of candles and other items.

This year Christmas in the Country will be held Nov. 20, 21, and 22. Open Houses will be from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Friday and Saturday and from 2-5 p.m. Sunday.
