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.

Aaron Yakim and Cynthia Taylor create refined rib baskets and split baskets directly from the white oak tree using hand tools, continuing a heritage craft of the central and southern Appalachian mountain region. The skill lies in finding suitable basket timber, creating the basket materials, as well as designing and weaving the baskets.
