If you or your children are fans of art, the Royal Oak Clay, Glass and Metal Show might be for you. At this unique art fest, check out over 120 different artists, specializing in metal, glass, clay and jewelry. Head on down to Royal Oak June 10-11, 2017 to experience this award-winning event first hand.
See a wide variety of art in this variety of mediums, ranging from beautiful handmade bowls and glasses to necklaces and sculptures. Watch metal being forged, glass being turned into pendants and even tiles being pressed and decorated.
Not only can you see them and watch artists create works, you could even make art of your own for a small fee. Kids can enjoy Lonnie Ingram showing them how to make a bunny out of pipe cleaners at booth 103. John Crahen at booth 109 can show you how to make a small version of a stained glass window to take home. Or, if jewelry is more your style, the DIA, which will be set up at Fourth and Main streets, can show you how to make a Milagro charm.
