Craft has deep roots in North Carolina, serving everyday needs and satisfying artistic aspirations for centuries.

Whether made by Native Americans, early Moravian immigrants to the Piedmont region, potters in the Catawba Valley and Seagrove areas or enthusiasts who “rediscovered” craft in the last century, craft has a celebrated history in our state, and in many communities craft remains a living tradition among contemporary artisans who honor and celebrate both form and function in endlessly creative ways. Find the best places to see craft, learn how to start a collection and explore hands-on experiences for the whole family as you discover North Carolina craft.
