Plan Your Visit
While we are thrilled that you’re visiting our website, we would love to meet and greet you in person! The Appalachian Arts Crafts Center is home to an extensive gift shop, where you will find fine handmade arts and crafts from regional artisans for sale year-round. The Center also houses our weaving and pottery studios and classrooms. Our expert instructors conduct arts and crafts classes for all ages and levels of ability and interest throughout the year.
The health and safety of our visitors, as well as our staff and volunteers, is of utmost concern during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are following local government and CDC guidelines to ensure the safest environment possible. Our staff and volunteers wear masks and practice recommended social distancing. We ask that our visitors do the same. In addition, we clean and sanitize all surfaces regularly, wash our hands frequently and have an ample supply of hand sanitizer on hand for everyone’s use.
