Smoky Mountain Antiques, Arts and Crafts

Smoky Mountain art and crafts began over 10,000 years ago when the Cherokee tribe crafted tools, clothing, art and more from simple materials like honeysuckle vines, gourds, corn beads, and feathers. Today, pieces of original Cherokee and pioneer art native to the Smoky Mountains are just one cherished aspect of the Smoky Mountain antiques, arts, and crafts scene. Theatre, musicians, museums, artisans and their galleries all comprise the modern landscape of Smoky Mountain crafts. Our art and crafts run the gambit of historical preservation of priceless Smoky Mountain antiques to 21st century creations that blend tradition and today. You can even learn how to make your own Smoky Mountain arts and crafts in one of several folk schools in the area. Come explore Smoky Mountain antiques, art, and crafts and see history in the making.
