Do it all at Wildacres, a beautiful retreat center atop the Blue Ridge Mountains.
For 42 years, Wildacres has welcomed artisans to retreat to its beautiful North Carolina mountains to hone their craft. Members of GLMSDC participate as teachers as well as students, immersing ourselves in silversmithing, beading, lapidary arts, and more. We dine on delicious food, listen to expert speakers, sleep in comfortable lodging, explore trails, and make lifelong friends.
$390 for a week of relaxation and artistic inspiration is a gift! Come learn, network and support Wildacres. Register NOW for the fall session, September 1–7, visit Wildacres
