Mississippi Craftsmen’s Guild and Craft Center

Mississippi Craft Center

When traveling to the Jackson Mississippi area, take time to discover the exquisite craftwork produced by members of the Mississippi Craftsmen’s Guild.  The Craftsmen’s work is exhibited at the Mississippi Craft Center, located less than four miles from the Cabot Lodge Jackson North

Expert craftsmanship, love of the art, and the satisfaction of producing fine crafts while expressing their inner visions--these are among the qualities shared by members of the Craftsmen’s Guild of Mississippi.  Initiated in 1973 with only 30 craftsmen, the Guild has become well respected for its high degree of craftsmanship and its current membership includes more than 400 professional artisans from across the Southeast.  Guild members play an integral part in preserving the area’s strong cultural heritage by hosting workshops, providing free school demonstrations and teaching their craft.  Chimneyville Crafts Festival, held the first weekend in December, is one of the largest, oldest and prominent craft shows in the region.  Shoppers at the three day show shop for everything from stocking stuffers to unique gifts reflecting Mississippi's heritage to useful household objects and furnishings to exquisite, affordable art. 

If you can’t make it to the Chimneyville Festival, visit the Mississippi Craft Center at 950 Rice Road in Ridgeland, Mississippi.  The Center is home to a permanent collection of one-of-a-kind craft items, a sales gallery and the administrative offices of the Craftsmen’s Guild.  In addition, classrooms are available for instruction by the Guild’s Master Craftsmen and rental space is available for corporate functions and social events.    

Reminiscent of a rustic lodge often found off the beaten path, the Cabot Lodge Jackson North features up-to-date, comfortable accommodations in a warm and relaxing atmosphere. After your visit to the Mississippi Craft Center, join us for complimentary snacks and drinks served in the atrium each evening, or relax in your room furnished with a 32” flat panel LG television, comfortable bedding and fresh linens.  All guests staying at the Cabot Lodge Jackson North Hotel also enjoy complimentary high-speed Internet access, 24-hour coffee service and access to an on-site exercise room. 

Whether you’re visiting Jackson Mississippi for business or leisure, you can look forward to several complimentary services during your stay at the Cabot Lodge Jackson North.  Make reservations through this website to get the best rates available for your guest room or Executive room.
