 “The beginning is the most important part of the work.” ~Plato

Mountain Made is pleased to offer once again this year, live weekly art and craft demonstrations.  Every Saturday from 11-4PM, (during our summer and fall seasons) we will be hosting a live demonstration given by one of our local artisans on a variety of crafts such as hand molded ceramics, wood sculpture, metalwork, painting as well as many other wonderful and original art forms.

Each artist will be available to speak with your, while working  at our mini artist’s studio, inside the gallery.

We invite you to Come By & Watch Our Artists in Action!
