Masters of Building Arts Festival
The Masters of Building Arts Festival, hosted by the American College of the Building Arts (ACBA) will be held March 24-26 in downtown Charleston, S.C. The event will showcase master artisans from throughout the United States, as well as students and faculty from ACBA to showcase their skills and artistry of the building arts.
The festival will feature continuous demonstrations to showcase the techniques, tools, materials and methods of master artisans within the building arts, and will also include an auction of period architecture playhouses produced by regional architects and builders. There will also be scaled models on display from Les Compagnons du Devoir, a European program that has been teaching the building arts for more than 600 years.
Fun for the whole family, the festival will feature hands-on children's programs based on traditional building arts. For more information, visit www.buildingartscollege.us.
