TUNKHANNOCK — The Dietrich Theater will host a Makers Fest from 2 to 4 p.m. Friday, Dec. 29.

The event, created as part of Heritage PA’s Fifth Friday promotion, is designed to highlight local artists, crafters and makers. It will feature several people from the Endless Mountains area who specialize in producing one-of-a-kind treasures.

A video about the PA Route 6 Artisan Trail will also be premiered.

People are invited to come out and discover the paintings and jewelry of Amy Colley, pottery and recycled glass items by Steve Colley, welded metal creations of Frank Hoeffert, fused glass jewelry from Esther Harmatz, quilting created with recycled materials by Ingrid Rogler, wood crafts from Chuck Long and more.

Every attendee will be entered into a raffle for an Endless Mountain gift basket.

The Makers Fest is sponsored by the PA Route 6 Alliance, Endless Mountains Heritage Region, Endless Mountains Visitor Bureau and the Dietrich Theater as an effort to encourage residents to support local makers and help boost the economy in 2018.
