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:

Greg and Carla Filippelli developed a free form style of weaving called random weave in the 1980's. Their fluid designs and shapes have evolved into functional baskets and sculptural art for the wall. Influenced by their natural surroundings, their work reflects: love of nature and organic forms using hand dyed reeds, fibers and wild vines.
