Woodworking, Woodcarving, and Woodturning are among our most popular subjects, and each discipline celebrates the beauty of wood in a unique way. Here at the Folk School, we use wood to craft furniture, bowls, sculpture, containers, vessels, tools, and more. Come get acquainted with wood this summer at the Folk School!

Just a short note to say how much I enjoyed my recent trip and week long stay at the John C. Campbell Folk Craft school. The class I took was wood carving ….I’ve been carving for almost 10years but needed some guidance and instruction from a professional. Believe me I got everything I wanted and more.. My instructor,Larry Green has been teaching for over 20 yrs , and most of that time at the school….He is patient and your enthusiasm for carving will be revitalized after his class.. I highly recommend the school , the instructors, the entire environment was a great experience….I’m already looking forward to another class in the near future.

Hey folks…
Jerry Morgan here, Covington Virginia….
I have been woodcarving for a number of years and am looking for classes/week long, 2 week residential type situations that I can get plugged into. I am realizing that I need some tutoring. I don’t have a definite style of carving and my history does not contain formal training. Self taught and wanting to carve more.
help me???

thanks
jerry morgan

I want a listing of your WOODTURNING classes (with course description, instructor(s) and dates) for this year.
I took the class before years ago and loved it (I even had a lathe of my own and turned some plates and a bowl (with a natural bark edge). I ended up selling the lathe.
I am thinking about trying it all again, and want to take a woodturning course again sometime.
Could you send a list of this years classes, or a link to an on-line catalog??
I’d also need a link with details of signing up and registering for a class (and housing). For next year if it’s too late for this year.
Thank you,
John McCarthy
