american craft council presents atlanta southeast craft week september 20–26 2021

Atlanta/Southeast Craft Week was an online marketplace where you could not only shop from more than 200 artists but also discover their stories, see how they make their work, and learn about the inspiration behind their craft.

While connecting you to artists from across the country, Craft Week will also celebrated the handmade culture of the Southeast through regional partnerships and programming. We were thrilled to be able to do this in person for Atlanta/Southeast Craft Week, with special LIVE programming taking place in the Atlanta area September 23–25.
