Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community

The long and honored Smoky Mountain tradition of expertly crafted goods originated with the earliest Appalachian settlers. Transforming what they grew, raised or found on the land into the everyday items needed for their homes and communities, these industrious men and women took great pride in creating pieces that were functional, beautiful and designed to last.

Today, the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community grants visitors the chance to watch master craftsmen and artisans at work in their studios and workshops. Potters, painters, sculptors and silversmiths join woodcarvers, weavers and workers of leather to demonstrate skills handed down through generations. Other finely crafted goods along the 8-mile Gatlinburg Arts and Crafts Loop include patchwork quilts, straw brooms, woven baskets and hand-dipped candles.

Designated as a Tennessee Heritage Arts & Crafts Trail, the Great Smoky Arts and Crafts Community consists of more than 120 artists and craftsmen, making it the largest organization of independent artisans in America. Located just three miles from downtown Gatlinburg, the Craft Trail Loop is served by the Gatlinburg Trolley System.
