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.

Brandy Clements
Maker Statement:

Brandy is a 4th generation chair caner on a mission to promote what many think of as a "lost art." She and her husband own Silver River Center for Chair Caning in the River Arts District of Asheville, NC. It not only an official education center of the Southern Highland Craft Guild, but also the only chair caning school and museum in the country. While they do restore a variety of caned furniture, they also encourage everyone to become part of the story of their chair through their seat weaving classes.
