The event, which is free and open to the public, will feature carpet weavers, basket makers, crochet artists, embroiderers, henna painters, and jewelry makers. Artists represent countries of origin including Sri Lanka, Lithuania, Somalia, Burma, Iran, Iraq, Romania, and Laos, and are all living in the Greater Hartford area now.
