John C. Campbell Folk School May Garden

   Established in 1925, the John C. Campbell Folk School is one of America’s premier folk art schools. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the school offers a wide range of instruction in traditional and contemporary art, crafts, music, dance, nature studies, gardening and cooking. The Folk School's Craft Shop represents more than 300 juried craftspeople and features an impressive collection of traditional and contemporary Appalachian craft, including jewelry, pottery, wood, fiber, ironwork, basketry and other disciplines.
    The school’s fascinating 82-year background is captured in our History Center, where you’ll find interesting examples of 20th-century Appalachia on display, including visual art, fine and folk craft, music, historic film footage, photographs and written textual panels
