The Historic Savannah Foundation and the Davenport House Museum are pleased to announce a full schedule of immersive, creative workshops at the revitalized Historic Kennedy Pharmacy, located at 323 E. Broughton St., as part of the Artisan Spotlight Series.

The Artisan Spotlight Series, which officially launched in the spring, celebrates local talent by providing a vibrant platform for artists and artisans to showcase their unique creative processes. These engaging, hands-on events allow local residents and visitors from around the world to experience Savannah’s artistic community firsthand. The series has quickly grown in popularity, inspiring participants to explore different facets of the city’s rich cultural heritage.

“We’ve had such a positive response to our new community-focused series,” said Davenport House Museum Executive Director Danielle Hodes, who is organizing the Artisan Spotlight Series. “Our initial Artisan Spotlight Series events were filled with participants eager to learn new skills and to explore the Hostess City through a creative lens. This summer and fall, we invite the public to join us for exclusive workshops with a new set of preeminent Savannah artists and artisans.”
