A woman quilting.Dillsboro’s old-fashioned charm and gracious hospitality has made it popular with a growing number of artisans and craftspeople who now make it their home.
      Many of Dillsboro's shops and galleries feature local artisans. And some of those artisans have Dillsboro studio-galleries where you can talk with the artisans as they work.
      At the edge of town, a small group of artisans are beginning to use landfill methane gas — a local source of green energy — to fuel blacksmith forges, glass-blowers' ovens and potters kilns.

      Potters comprise a large segment of Dillsboro's artisan community; and each November celebrate the ceramic arts with the Western North Carolina Pottery Festival on the streets of Dillsboro.
