Stop by for Crafts and History
The Lost River Artisans Cooperative and Lost River Museum have moved to 8937 State Road 259, just 1.8 miles south of our former location. We will open for the 2016 season on Saturday, April 16 at 10 a.m. Nestled in the scenic Lost River Valley of West Virginia’s Potomac Highlands, the Lost River Artisans Cooperative and Museum provide visitors the opportunity to experience history through displays of artifacts donated by local families and discovered nearby. The Cooperative offers a mix of heritage crafts and contemporary art including weaving, knitting and crocheting, pottery and glass, wood and iron, painting and photography. Our organization provides visitors with an opportunity to see how the art and crafts are created by hosting Featured Artists every weekend. For those who want to pursue a particular craft in depth, the Lost River Educational Foundation offers classes that provide a hands-on opportunity to learn a specific skill. The classes are taught by local artists and crafters. Check back often as our class offerings change throughout the season.
