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 nearly 900 makers selected by a jury for the high quality of design and craftsmanship. The Southern Highlands continues to inspire and lead the craft revival movement.

Maker Statement:

I am an encaustic artist and bookbinder, smitten with beeswax and bindings. For years encaustic and bookbinding were separate entities in my life, the art and the craft, the experimental and the meditative, and I craved a convergence. My journals are designed to honor books as an art form.
