Mark your calendars for our 2019 Carolina Artisan Craft Market, November 1 – 3, in the Raleigh Convention Center Exhibit Hall C!


2019 marks the 50th year of the Carolina Designer Craftsmen Guild’s annual November event.  All ticket sales benefit this local nonprofit and host!  The Carolina Artisan Craft Market is a trusted resource for art collectors and first-time buyers looking for the finest contemporary and traditional craft being made in America.

Fine craft artists present a striking variety of glass, ceramics, wood, both wearable and decorative fibers, metal, leather, basketry, printmaking and mixed media, as well as one-of-a-kind handmade furniture and both precious and semi-precious jewelry.

A rigorous two-step jury selection process attracts emerging and career craft artists who are presenting craft at the highest level, reflecting a mastery of technique and originality of design. In addition to new and emerging provisional member artists, we welcome back our juried Exhibiting Artist Members as well.
