Tennessee Craft Week

Tennessee Craft Week

October 1-9, 2022

Tennessee Craft Week celebrates the vital role of craft in our state during the first week of each October. With events featuring traditional to contemporary craft art and craft-making in all regions of the Volunteer State, Tennessee Craft Week invites everyone to enjoy the unique richness of Tennessee’s craftscape!

1. Submit your Tennessee Craft Week event on this application, and we’ll add it to the calendar.

2. Share your art through the annual Tennessee Craft Week Instagram Contest, August 1-31.
    • This contest is open to all craft artists in the state of Tennessee. Winning photos will credit the artist (and photographer, if noted). Artists should take a photo of their craft in a Tennessee-themed setting. This backdrop should reflect the beauty and richness of our geographically and culturally diverse state while bringing the focus on artisan work made in Tennessee. Check out past winners here.
    • Winning photos will be announced to the public on Thursday, September 8. The Grand Prize winner will receive a $200 gift certificate from Blick Art Materials. First, Second and Third place winners will be awarded gift certificates from Blick Art Materials and Cheap Joe’s Art Stuff. All winning photographs and Honorable Mentions will be used to promote the 2022 Tennessee Craft Week, which celebrates fine craft. Awards will be distributed on October 17.
    • Rules for Participation:
      • Artists must follow @TennesseeCraft, @BlickArtMaterials and @CheapJoesArtStuff on Instagram and include #TNCraftWeek with submitted photos.
      • All entries with the correct hashtag and “follows,” ­posted between August 1-31, 2022, will be eligible for the contest.
      • Photographs should have a clear focus, good color, and thoughtful composition in a 1:1 (square) ratio. Photos must be taken in high-resolution for printing purposes.
      • The focus of the photo should be the artwork, with a landscape in the background. Only original photographs are accepted.
      • By participating in the contest, artists/photographers agree to the use of their photos to promote Tennessee Craft Week.
