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.

Traditional Appalachian hand-split white oak baskets are the focus of Billy Ray's craft. But he also creates baskets of New England black ash, reed, and South Carolina sea grass. His basketry represents several years of a self-directed apprenticeship that involved collaboration with a half dozen master basket makers. It is homage to an endangered heritage.
