Arts, Crafts, Galleries

Nothing says Gatlinburg like Appalachian culture and love for its traditions, and the place to find them in abundance is in the Great Smoky Arts & Crafts Community. There are over 100 shops and studios for you to discover along the 8-mile loop that has been designated a Tennessee Heritage Arts & Crafts Trail.

2016-Arts-Crafts-Community-GuideIf you have a love for the hand made, there is a little bit of everything arts & crafts from functional to collectible made with old fashioned skills and perhaps tweaked with modern techniques.

  • Wood Carvings & Furniture
  • Potteries
  • Stained Glass & Glass Art
  • Jewelry
  • Watercolor & Oil Paintings
  • Brooms, Baskets & Quilts
  • Leather Works & Custom Knives
  • Soaps & Candles

Although there may be more than one shop or studio offering these handcrafted items, each is as unique as the artists creating them. You’ll have a wonderful variety from which to choose heirlooms that your family can appreciate for generations.

While you’re exploring the craft trail, plan to stop in one of the many local restaurants, eateries and sweet shops. There are several of those to choose from too!
