I stopped by the Oscar Cantrell Blacksmith Shop, the current shop of Resident Blacksmith, Paul Garrett. Paul and I talked about the upcoming Blacksmith & Fine Craft Auction on November 1, a special event planned for October 31st, and about Folk School life in general. Enjoy!

Presenting our new Fall Festival Poster for 2014! The image celebrates the bounty of the fall harvest with a young banjo pickin’ gal sitting in a pumpkin patch. She holds a cornucopia, a symbol of abundance, overflowing with riches of the land. The two vessels, a clay vase and a hand woven basket, harken to the union of the form and function found in many crafts created at the Folk School. The style of our fall maiden is inspired by Dame’s Rocket Clog Morris.
