Asheville is a Craft City. From the mugs we make out of local clay to the beer we brew with seasonal produce, craft is everywhere. We value the local, entrepreneurial, small-batch, high quality, and handmade. If you are curious about craft, join us as we explore what makes Asheville a Craft City.

Discover craft in surprising places! Join a local expert for a behind the scenes tour of the best small-batch, high-quality, and handmade in Asheville. Visit galleries, taste local beers, watch live demonstrations, sip craft cocktails, and meet the creatives that continue to make Asheville a Craft City.

Join the Center for Craft for an Asheville food and art tour co-led by local food writer, blogger, and podcaster, Stu Helm and craft expert, Anna Helgeson. Throughout this two-mile walking tour, Stu and Anna will offer ways to understand Asheville's urban landscape and restaurant scene through the craft philosophy—thoughtful making with a reverence for process and material.

Taste, touch, and sip your way among ten carefully chosen stops, all while learning about the history of craft in the region, and encountering the creative people, objects, and libations that make Asheville a Craft City. If you love all things high-quality, small-batch, and handcrafted—or are just curious how a craft cocktail is different than a well drink—join us!

Please note, reservations must be made at least 24 hours in advance of the tour.
