About the Cover Art

Welcome Flag by Suzanne DesLauriers

“Welcome Flag is a watercolor painting about the joy and anticipation of coming to the John C. Campbell Folk School for that very special class. Pick up your packet in the office, don’t forget to get a cookie and some juice on your way out!”

I am interested in Colonial and 18th century tinsmith, and Colonial style chairs using hand tools and either spring pole or treadle turning lathes.

Will you all have any classes this year on Tinsmithing or chair building? Thanks

Hi Doug,
There is a Tinsmithing class in November that uses tools and methods of 19th century tinsmiths. You are welcome to contact the instructor to see if he will cover any other periods. I will send you an email with his contact information. Thank you for your interest in learning Tinsmithing at the Folk School.
