“Appalachian Crafts”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This school is an icon and the works of arts and crafts are truly impressive. The campus is an enclave of American master artists and their students with displays that are exceptional.

“Exceptional craft school”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

ACC has some of the best crafts training in the South, and its shop is filled with museum-quality work. I always come away wanting more than I can afford. Great place.

“For fine craft connoisseurs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Located 10 minutes off I40 just west of Cookeville, TN is the Appalachian Center for Crafts. This satellite campus of TTU is a craftsman's mecca. The beauty of the surroundings is inspiring in itself. The facilities are first class and the Gallery is full of regional and student work that is both creative and of the highest standards. Grab your credit card and shop, you will pay top dollar, but the quality of the work is worth it. You may purchase one of the first pieces of a soon to be famous craftsman. AND... don't forget the Cafe-the food there is also creative and delicious. It is always worth the trip.

“A Gem, Just off I-40”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2013

About 10 to 15 minutes south of Interstate 40, the Appalachian Center for Craft. For anyone who wants to see or purchase beautiful craft works, this is a short side trip.
In addition to a very interesting gallery, the scenery alone is worth the visit. Just off the drive which enters the property, is a scenic overlook. Don't miss this added attraction.
