64th annual Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands is July 21-24

Written by 

The Craft Fair of the Southern Highlands continues its fine craft tradition July 21 to 24 in Asheville. More than 200 craftspeople will fill two levels of the Asheville Civic Center selling their works of clay, glass, leather, metal, fiber, mixed media, natural materials, paper, wood and jewelry.

All exhibitors are mountain artists who are masters of their craft and have been accepted into the Southern Highland Craft Guild. The Guild is a non-profit organization which has been supporting local and regional craftspeople since 1930. Crafts rooted in Appalachian customs are featured along with the work of contemporary artists.

Throughout the show, the guild will sponsor educational craft demonstrations, including natural dyeing and spinning, throwing, trimming and assembling clay, raku firing, and doll making.

The fair will also host live entertainment beginning on Friday. Local musicians will play on the arena stage, sharing old time music and bluegrass.
