At the three-day Carolina Artisan Craft Market, November 11 – 13, 2016 at the Raleigh Convention Center, attendees will shop from more than 110 contemporary fine craft artists who’ve travelled from across North Carolina and the U.S. to the heart of downtown Raleigh.
Our handcrafted artisan shopping experience includes dynamic artist demonstrations, live music, and an award winning art exhibition.
2016 marks the 47th year of the Carolina Designer Craftsmen Guild’s annual November event. The Carolina Artisan Craft Market is a trusted resource for art collectors and first-time buyers looking for the finest contemporary and traditional craft being made in America. All ticket sales benefit the local nonprofit and host organization Carolina Designer Craftsman Guild.
Fine craft artists present a striking variety of glass, ceramics, wood, both wearable and decorative fibers, metal, leather, basketry, printmaking, photography and mixed media, as well as one-of-a-kind handmade furniture and both precious and semi-precious jewelry.
A rigorous two-step jury selection process attracts emerging and career craft artists who are presenting craft at the highest level – reflecting a mastery of technique and originality of design. In addition to new and emerging provisional artists, we welcome back our juried Exhibiting Artist Members as well.
