The Marshall Handmade Market is something special among holiday shows. This November 19, from 10:00 to 5:00, you can shop your heart out while enjoying a peek into the eclectic Marshall High Studios on Blannahassett Island, touring resident artist studios and taking in the work of local artists, designers and craftspeople handpicked by the artists of MHS.
The renovated high school from 1929 sits in the middle of the French Broad River and has attracted an interesting mix of creative people. For the past eight years MHS artists have come together to organize and present one of the most popular shows in the area. The exhibition showcases over 50 artists and fine craft artisans from Western North Carolina as well as gourmet food artisans, handmade soap and apothecary arts. The organizers take great pride in focusing attention on Madison County artists as well as emerging artists from the surrounding areas.
In the Gallery and Exhibitors sections below you’ll find last year’s fine artists and craftspeople. Check back for an updated list of exhibitors for this year’s market!
