Celebrate the kick-off of American Craft WeekAmerican Craft Week is a celebration of craft happening October 1-10 all across the United States. Artists, galleries, museums, schools and individuals are celebrating in order to bring awareness to the many benefits of handmade craft to our economy and our way of life.
American Craft Week in WNC is leading the way as the largest regional celebration happening in the country. Festivals, open studios, exhibits, workshops, demonstrations and more are happening all around the WNC area. The Downtown Gallery Association is having its First Friday Gallery Stroll on October 1 from 5pm to 8pm. The Grove Arcade will be kicking off ACW right before the gallery stroll with a proclamation by Mayor Bellamy’s office, insights from HandMade in America and light refreshments at the Grove Arcade.
We invite you to join us and learn more about American Craft Week events happening all over WNC!
