WomanCraft is an all-local, self-sustaining co-op of over 70 artists and artisans, founded over 3 decades ago. We are totally run by our volunteer artisans. On June 29, 2013, we were destroyed by the flood in Chapel Hill. We reopened after a month-long clean-up and recovery. In December 2013, our lease was not renewed, and we were forced to leave our location in Chapel Hill. Once again our volunteer members packed up everything and moved to a new location in the 300 E.Main complex in Carrboro. Our co-op members create fine handcrafted jewelry, pottery, art, fiber arts, clothing, art glass, basketry, and more. Please join us on Monday, February 10, 6-8 pm to celebrate our opening in the new location. We will have refreshments, free Chapel Hill toffee, and a ribbon-cutting ceremony. We will also participate in the Second Friday ArtWalk with the fitting theme “Love is Local” on Friday February 14, 6-9pm. Refreshments and wine will be served, and it is a wonderful opportunity to choose a Valentine gift that supports the local arts community. There is free parking behind the building.

MEET Artists and Artisans. Please come and support arts in your local community!
