The main focus of the festival is its arts and crafts vendors.  Artisans and craftsmen from all over display, demonstrate and sell their hand-crafted items.  Again this year, several regional blacksmiths will be forging metal artwork demonstrating their craftsmenship and talents throughout the day.

In addition to the arts and crafts, there is music throughout the day and a variety of food vendors providing good food.

Other activities include: Horse Rescue South will have a petting zoo, the Southern Indiana Mule and Draft Horse Association will provide free wagon rides, Agape Church will have a pedal tractor pull and Renew Cannelton, Inc. will sponsor a kids’ carnival and pumpkin painting.

Kusari, or Japanese chainmail, was invented in the 13th century, around the time of the Mongol invasions of Japan. Used to connect plates of armor, it drapes and hangs like fabric.   Today, artists use Kusari to make beautiful jewelry and body art.  It’s flexibility, versatility and strength make it the perfect medium for “knitting with steel.”

Kyra Matsui, Japanese-Canadian artist and designer, will demonstrate the art of Kusari,  share the historical and literary inspirations for her life and work, and  tell the story of how she went from that kind-of weird-kid in the corner of the classroom to an internationally known jewelry designer who spends her days knitting with steel.  You’re invited to come and meet the artist at  Perry County Public Library.


This program is free and open to the public.
