Our mission

Traditional Arts Today is a nonprofit established to increase appreciation for unique and practical hand crafted items.  Our mission is to connect artists and their creations with the community by offering classes in the traditional arts and by providing a venue for artists to sell their creations.  We are deeply concerned that many people do not fully understand the time and skill it takes to create unique and practical hand crafted items.  We are also concerned that the traditional arts skills will be lost because there are few people to learn from, and many high schools no longer teach home economics.  

Through your purchase you support our traditional arts heritage, and the artists who made the unique items you admire.
