Traditional Craft Mentorships

We are thrilled to announce the Traditional Craft Mentorship Program, a grant-funded opportunity for early-to-mid-career artists to spend a month in Brasstown this fall, learning from master artisans. This creative means to safely offer programs follows the difficult decision to cancel all previously scheduled 2020 programs and events. Through this new endeavor, made possible by rethinking an unexpected change to our standard programming, we have found a way to invite small groups of emerging artists to focused sessions that will enhance their interests, knowledge, and skills in traditional Appalachian craft, music, and dance.

We currently accepting applications applicants for one-month long mentorships in Basketry, Blacksmithing, Chair Making, Fiber Arts, Music & Dance, and Weaving. Click here for complete information about the program and how to apply.
