By Western Hands, a non-profit organization, will preserve the legacy of western design by promoting today’s top artisans, educating the craftsmen of the future and preserving the iconic designs for future generations to enjoy.
Skilled craftsmen and artisans who are able to create lasting pieces of beautiful and functional art are becoming ever rarer in today’s modern world. If we do not actively encourage and support them, their legacy will wither and an amazing piece of western history will be forgotten.
Today, we have a unique opportunity to take meaningful action that will provide a future for western design for generations to come.
We promote and support artisans, events, and activities that sustain the creation of handmade decorative and functional art using designs and techniques influenced by the American West.
The Member Gallery will showcase pieces from the best western artisans working today. Each piece made and sold by our members through the Member Gallery will be identified by the marked brand of By Western Hands® and will have an identification number. The Member Gallery will be the premier location to visit for individuals, designers, and patrons looking to purchase high quality western functional art.
