Appalachian Artisan Studio Shops
In spring 2007 the Appalachian Artisan Studio Shops opened in the Bolen Building (85 W Main St.). The Studios program is part of the Appalachian Artisan Center's efforts to help artists create and grow their own successful small businesses. Located in downtown Hindman, this first building in the AAC Studios program will house 10 artist’s studios. Work can be purchased there, tours taken and workshops will be held to guide the artist to a point of running their own independent business.
Within the next five years there will be approximately 40 artist studios in the AAC studios' buildings. Using the incubator model of economic development we help small businesses start and grow by providing them with: assistance with business issues such as marketing and accounting, access to shared workshops with professional-quality machinery, affordable studio space, a retail marketplace for their work and a community that provides support and assistance to help each other as they grow their businesses.
