The primary mission of the South Carolina Artisans Center is to showcase and market the handcrafted work of our state’s leading artists while ensuring that art inspired by tradition is protected and nurtured.


The non-profit center utilizes a retail outlet, interpretive displays of Southern folk life, live demonstrations, and educational and informational programs as venues to communicate South Carolina’s culture to the public. By promoting the indigenous fine crafts produced exclusively by South Carolina artists, the Center creates a better understanding of our rich and diverse cultural heritage.
