Crafts Fair

Piedmont Craftsmen's 53rd Annual Craft Fair


November 19 & 20, 2016




Piedmont Craftsmen’s Fair News Release

Quality craftsmanship and excellent design have always been the hallmarks of Piedmont Craftsmen's Fair. Held annually since 1963 by Piedmont Craftsmen, Inc., the fair showcases the handwork of more than 100 fine artisans from across the southeast in a setting that allows shoppers to meet the crafts people, talk to them about their work, and view demonstrations of craft techniques.

Exhibiting members include craft artists who work in clay, wood, glass, fibers, leather, metal, photography, printmaking, and mixed media creating one-of-a-kind works that can be functional as well as beautiful. In addition to the quality of the work shown, Piedmont Craftsmen's Fair has a well deserved reputation for an ambiance that is relaxed, welcoming, and beautiful.
