“Wonderful Place to See Variety of Crafts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Whenever we are in Asheville, we try to go by and visit the Folk Art Center. Never fail to see something new and different. A must visit for artists and crafters.

“A great place to visit, but probably not shop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

The variety of skill and talent represented at the Center is beyond the usual. These are professional craftspeople, with prices that are fair for the work they have done, but beyond what most would pay for a memento.

Very informative place with items for sale. The items are a little pricey but the quality seem to support the prices.

“Great walk through”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

This is a wonderful place to spend an hour or more. Plenty of local crafts and art. There is no entry fee. Occasionally they have shows so check their calendar. This is an adult friendly afternoon adventure and kids probably will be bored.
