Of course you get to keep your artwork, and this makes a great way to create an absolutely unique gift or keepsake.This annual event started in 2016,and proved a great hit. You can see our previous write-ups here and here.

If you’ve long admired the custom crafts on display along the Arts & Crafts Community Trail, this is a great way to get closer to the skills involved.

Learn how to make your own glass ornament, or paint in acrylics, work wood, make soap, weave rugs, or baskets. There’s an opportunity to work with paints or fabrics, with clay or even with flints.

Update – Online registration is now closed, but spaces may be available. Contact the studio directly to find out.

About Tony Perez

I'm a people person, and I enjoy the atmosphere that working with Cabins Of The Smoky Mountains entails, interacting with different types of people and trying to relate to each one uniquely. From Michigan originally, I've been coming to the Smoky Mountains since I was a child, with family in Wears Valley. Summer fun for me is exploring the Cades Cove area, swimming in the creeks, and hiking Mount LeConte and many other trails. I love the Smoky Mountains.
