Artists and Heritage Skills Directory

Interested in offering your heritage, life, or artistic skills to instruct or accept commissions from others?

We are developing a directory of people who are willing to teach others or take commissions.

If you have an art, heritage, or life skill to share, sign up.  We will prepare the directory and have it available online at the HCAC and Hampshire County Co-op web and FB pages as well as hard copies in different locations in the county.  No fees to HCAC or the Hamp. Co. Co-op are necessary.
