Located near the Natchez Trace Parkway since 1975, the Craftsmen's Guild of Mississippi is a non-profit organization of craftsmen and others to preserve and promote folk, traditional and contemporary crafts.

The mission of the Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi, Inc., is to preserve, promote, market, educate and encourage excellence in regional crafts, believing that regular contact with the skilled work of the hand enhances both producers’ and patrons’ lives.

The William Lowe “Bill” Waller, Sr. Craft Center is the headquarters for The Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi and home to the guild's Gallery Shop, special events and wedding venue, classes, camps, and demonstrations.

"Craft work in Mississippi – like our music, art, literature and history – is as much a part of what makes Mississippi distinctive as our natural resources."

For over four decades, the Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi has been helping craftsmen make a living from their craft, enforced high standards for fine craft, and provided educational programs to pass along both craft skills and an appreciation for them to future generations.

Visitor Hours:
