Appalachian Spring 2016

May 22, 2016 - May 27, 2016

    ARTS!   MUSIC!   DANCE!

 

The first European settlers in our Highland Plateau of the Appalachian Mountains brought artful and useful skills including Quilting, Toy Making & Woodworking, Basket Weaving, and Instrument Making.

Join us to re-discover your inherited talents and carry home your handiwork for “show and tell”.

Improving your Ballad Singing, Storytelling, Square Dancing…

The daily schedule will include two sessions each day in each area and participants will choose ONE, as an all-day intensive.

If strong interest in one-time demos, we’ll invite nearby Foxfire Village presenter to make bark berry baskets, corn husk dolls, etc.
