About the Vermont Crafts Council

Our Mission: The Vermont Crafts Council will create and enhance an appreciation among the public of the quality, beauty, and history of Vermont crafts and artwork to encourage and sustain the creation of original craft and artwork in Vermont.

The Vermont Crafts Council is a steadfast supporter of and advocate for the high-quality craftsmanship that can be found throughout the Green Mountain State. Vermont has emerged as one of the epicenters of the crafts revival in America and it has a long tradition of producing fine craft.

Founded in 1990, the Vermont Crafts Council represents a community of over 200 visual artists, arts organizations, galleries, and art education facilities. Through business development programming, marketing opportunities, and open studio events, the Vermont Crafts Council offers ways for craftspeople to both maintain and grow their creative businesses. The Vermont Crafts Council also endeavors to educate the public about the value of handmade objects.

The Vermont Crafts Council is governed by a board of directors drawn from its membership and voted into office during the annual meeting of the corporation, held at the same time as the Spring Marketing Conference, usually in April.
