Historic Craft Shops

Discover handmade at Sauder Village!

Handmade Tin

Historic Sauder Village is proud to be home to artisans and craftsmen who not only follow the traditions of their respective crafts, but are developing revolutionary new techniques and applications as well. Each one of the artists carries on a skill that was vital to everyday life at the time the Black Swamp was settled. Today, they're some of the premier artists in their fields. Visit their studios here on the Web and then be sure to see them in action when you visit the Historic Village. Crafts are handmade daily and available for purchase.
