Imagine being able to complete your holiday shopping and support the local artisans of Western North Carolina without ever having to set foot in a crowded mall or department store! On November 28th and 29th, you will have the opportunity to do just that during the Stecoah Valley Artisans’ Drive About.
From 10a.m. until 5p.m. on Friday and Saturday, you can visit the Stecoah Valley Art Center and several local galleries. You can enjoy the beautiful weather and mountain views as you drive to each site where you can watch artisans create beautiful beeswax lanterns and pottery in the studio and sample some locally made cheeses. At the Stecoah Valley Center, you can stop by the café for lunch before browsing through the gallery, which displays work from over 140 artisans. In the gallery, you will find hundreds of beautiful pieces; baskets, paintings, photographs, jewelry, blankets, rugs, preserves, soaps – you name it! You are sure to find something special for everyone on your list.
