The Folk School was recently featured on the Time Warner Cable network’s Around Carolina. A big “thanks” to Richard Green, who produced the show which highlighted our history, our non-competitive philosophy, and how we are preserving traditional craft.
Featured in the show are Jan Davidson (our banjo picking director) and studio visits with Kurt Herzog (Woodturning instructor), Kim St. Jean (Jewelry instructor), Allen Goodman (Woodcarving instructor), and Joanna Heidel (student).
Watch the Around Carolina segment:
We may be tucked away in rural Appalachia, but when folks want to feature our hands-on, non-competitive classes, we love to step into the limelight and show off how truly fantastic the Folk School is. Students, instructors, and Folk School folks love to share their Folk School experiences demonstrating how the Folk School is a life-changing experience.
