“The art of handmade crafts is a Tennessee legacy that continues to grow each year. Born from the hills of the Smokey Mountains, and evolving as artists create new works across the state, handmade crafts are bringing local communities together and creating a beautiful reason to tour the state.” -Tennessee CRAFT
