    MtnMade ACW_DSC_2426 copy (1)American Craft Week 2015 (Oct 2-11) begins on Friday!

    And the artisans at MOUNTAIN MADE are getting into the spirit with live art demonstrations.

    This will be the 6th annual American Craft Week (ACW), a 10-day event which was created to celebrate the skills and artistry of American craftsmen and their work. Once again, Mountain Made will be a proud sponsor of ACW here in Western North Carolina (WNC).

    Dozens of places in the Blue Ridge area will be involved in this event celebration either by offering workshops or showcasing the works of local artists and hosting live demonstrations.

    What is American Craft Week?

    Melinda Knies, owner of Mountain Made says, “American Craft Week is much more than just a way to promote individual artists or small art retailers – it is also a love of handcrafted arts and crafts.  And a deep belief in the future American enterprises…”

    Mrs. Knies goes on to say, “…The “Made in American” movement is a growing trend of discerning people who want to enrich and beautify their homes and work spaces with locally produced and handcrafted artwork – pieces that reflect both the unique creative designs and the quality of our American craftsmen.”

    “Not to mention it’s becoming cool to buy things you know are ‘Made in America’ again!” she said.

    “During American Craft Week we will be highlighting David Cook’s beautiful baskets made of “smoke Vine” or Dutchman’s pipe, a native vine that David has been working with for over 20 years.”

    Below are the dates and times of the live art demos/activities we recommend that you check out…
