Artisans, Crafters, Galleries and Guilds. In a world of “me-too” items and mass-produced “stuff,” take time to celebrate the beauty of handmade arts & crafts. From baskets and brooms to quilts and pottery, handcrafted items once served a strictly functional purpose here in the mountains. Thankfully, the old ways live on in North Georgia, which has become a haven for talented artisans who celebrate both form and function in endlessly creative ways. Along the Trail, you’ll find not only shops and stores, but also studios and galleries where you can watch skilled artisans whittle, paint, sew, cast, weave and carve.
