Inmates in the Tennessee Department of Correction are allowed to make craft projects during the
course of their incarceration. Many inmates who have never had the opportunity to actually create
something with their own hands now have the time to give it their all and actually do something
constructive. Not only does this give an inmate an outlet for his creative efforts, it also lets the inmate
see that he or she is capable of doing something that is constructive will also bring happiness to others.
This page will house many crafts made by inmates within the TDOC. We ask that you come back
from time to time to look at some of the craftsmanship that goes on behind the walls of a prison. We
think you'll be amazed at the pride that goes into these handmade items.
