Artistic Getaway

Is there someone in your life that has always wanted to throw pottery? Or, create their very own masterpiece with brush and canvas?  This fun, creative weekend is tucked in the quaint town of Camden, in Alabama’s scenic Black Belt and begins at the historic Liberty Hall BandB where they can take in the original period furnishings and stunning artwork. A real treat is sampling Liberty Hall’s famous cheese straws, an old family recipe. The creativity begins at Black Belt Treasures and includes a one-on-one class—their choice of pottery making or putting paint to canvas. Then shop for one-of-a-kind pieces from the many talented artisans and crafters found in the Black Belt.  They can even glide through the backwaters of the Alabama River on a canoe and take in the beauty of nature’s flora and fauna.  This unique destination won’t disappoint!
