We stopped in with a friend who knew Gary Worden. Gary gave a very interesting tour of the wonderful art from Vermont and New England. One can only wonder in awe of the different artists and media that expresses their talent. It is located right on Main Street in Brattleboro and a place that you can spend hours visiting. Drop...

What a great eclectic type of place. Lots of different type of artworks in addition to a great kitchen shop attached. My kids where ok in the place, but there are breakable stuff around so a word of caution.

When a person is walking through an unassuming local crafter collective, the expectation for what you will find is set to that level. So it was a pleasant surprise to find, after being nudged upstairs by the owner, a fine art gallery hanging some of the best of the local talent. We had no idea that this venue existed, but... More

Proprietor Greg Worden has taken many years to assemble an unbelievably diverse and incredibly beautiful collection of hand-crafted objects of utility, fine art, and superb craftsmanship. The objects, most of which are for sale, and many of which are useful to varying degrees, are located on the ground floor behind the storefront. But the storefront windows also hint, by their...

If you are interested in expert, highly professional quality pieces of art and jewelry, this is the place for you. Not your run of the mill craft shop. Lovely displays and helpful staff compliment the beautiful crafts.

Vermont Artisan design contains a nicely organized and selected range of mostly Vermont craft and art products ranging from pottery and glass to fine art paintings and photography. Greg Worden works hard to have a range of taste, price and style. It's a great place to browse and an excellent place to shop for things that will live easily in... More

This is typical of what Brattleboro offers: very specialized, high-quality artisan work. Our family loves to walk through here, and often chooses a wedding gift from here. Great people that own it, too!

It's always fun to see what new art, photography, and hand crafts are being featured when we are in the Brattleboro area. The owner and staff are very pleasant and helpful. I just wish we had more wall space!!

We stopped in on a lazy Sun. afternoon. Our browsing at Artisan Designs tied together brunch at the Backside, shopping at Sams for backpacking gear, and an afternoon matinee at Latchis. Greg was wonderful and my wife ended up buying a beautiful hand-blown cranberry glass vase! We alway spot something we'd love to have in our home - even if... More

We visit this shop everytime we're in Brattleboro (several times a year) and have been going there for 10+ years. There is always something new to see and wonder at. We usually leave with something. (Wish I could afford the higher priced art!) And everyone is friendly and helpful.
