There is something undeniably special about a hand-made object. Whether it’s a heartfelt gift from a loved one or a piece of gorgeous art created by a master craftsman, there is a quality that sets these items apart from the everyday things that you might find in a store, sitting on a shelf next to dozens of identical copies. The essence that makes handcrafted items more beautiful than others is easy to define, though. It’s soul. It’s the time, intention and humanity that went into the object’s creation. It is the thing that turns a little clay and a little glaze into something so much greater than the sum of its parts.
The spirit of craftsmanship has been an integral part of Silver Dollar City since the park’s beginning, and it continues to thrive among the 100 resident craftsmen who demonstrate their prowess in shops throughout The City. All season long, we’ve been celebrating our heritage of craftsmanship with The Year of Food & Crafts, shining the spotlight on these incredibly talented, hard-working artisans and the one-of-a-kind items they create.
The quality and attention to detail is evident in everything they produce, from handcrafted furniture and hand-carved mantels to expertly forged blades and exquisitely designed leather goods.
