Carolina Craft Day at Asheville's NC Arboretum

September 28   Carolina Craft Day at the NC Arboretum A day to celebrate Southern Appalachian traditions as they come alive at The North Carolina Arboretum. The event, now in its seventh year, features craft demonstrations and juried art and craft vendors and plant sales at the Arboretum's Education Center.

Western North Carolina is known for its botanical beauty and diversity, as well as for the many wonderful handmade crafts and art that are a part of the mountain way of life. Vitally important to the region’s craft heritage is the close relationship between crafts and the plants used in their production. Much of the fiber, color and artistic expression of mountain craft arises from the character and nature of plants.
