The Southeast’s largest juried indoor craft show features over 225 of the country’s top contemporary craft artists presenting their latest handmade creations in jewelry, clothing, furniture and home décor. The show runs for three days with a special $5 ticket price Friday evening after 5 p.m.

With artists working in ceramics, glass, fiber, wood, fashion, jewelry, leather and mixed media, shoppers will experience the work of hundreds of the country’s most talented craft makers under one roof, while exploring the process each artist uses to create his or her work.

A number of Intowners will be part of this year’s Make Room: Modern Design Meets Craft exhibit. The team includes James Wheeler, of James Wheeler Designs; Smith Hanes of Smith Hanes Studio; Willem Stear of Tonic Design Studio; and Jennifer Reiner and Robert White of Reiner White Design Studio. They are charged with transforming the show floor into spectacular craft-inspired room vignettes, themed “4 Directions” North, South, East, and West, to inspire show-goers with ideas on how to design rooms around their favorite craft pieces.
