Welcome to the Southern Highland Craft Guild
Since 1930, artists from Maryland to Alabama have come together to create a network and market for mountain craftspeople. Today, Guild membership stands at more than 900 artisans selected by a jury for the high quality of design and craftsmanship. The Southern Highlands continues to inspire and lead the craft revival movement.
