A Starry Night

  • Burntshirt Vinyards

"A Starry Night" will take place Thursday evening, April 27th at Burntshirt Vineyard. It will be a visually beautiful evening with top notch food. The event is  a cocktail hour followed by dinner with many of WNC's "stars" who will partake in an evening of close conversations with attendees. Each star will share a dinner table with 8-9 attendees, who will have their pick of star guest when they purchase tickets. The cocktail hour of the evening will provide a lively opportunity for attendees to mingle with all the stars. We'll truly have a cross generational evening with a diversity of voices from our region.

Made in WNC Opening Reception

  • Center for Craft Creativity & Design

Made in WNC examines the designer-maker movement through a regionally specific lens, considering how particular histories, geography, economics, technology, and education inform an international movement on a local level. Understanding the context for production, such as Western North Carolina’s legacy of the Craft Revival, the industrialization of the New South, and skill shortages caused by deindustrialization, begins to explain how this movement takes on specific, local distinctions.
