Southern Makers is an event that celebrates the best in creativity and design with artists that live and work in the south. The event activities, workshops, demonstrations and maker bazaar explore and center on taking southern traditions in architecture, food, fine art, fashion and design and applying them in a modern sustainable world. We hope that visitors will learn a little something about why the south is a unique and creative place to live, discover and visit.
