Arts and Crafts of Kentucky

Explore the Cumberland foothills community of Berea, the “arts and crafts Capital of Kentucky,” for charming shops selling some of the finest folk art Kentucky has to offer, including pottery, weaving, hand-carved instruments, galleries, original Appalachian art, glass blowers, the Berea Arts and Crafts Festival and more.

Discover the Paducah Lowertown Arts District, a community of over 70 artists from all over the country recruited to help the city’s creative and inspirational spirit flourish.

Visit Berea for the Kentucky Artisan Center; Harrodsburg for authentic Shaker-style crafts; and venture into the eastern Kentucky mountains to experience the history of Appalachian folk art for yourself, straight from the hands of Kentucky artists.

Whether you’re the crafty type or just admire authentic craftsmanship, check out Kentucky’s arts and crafts hotspots such as the Berea Arts and Crafts Festival or Harrodsburg if you’re interested in Shaker-style crafts.
