A School to Bring Folks Together
Who We Are
For 95 years, John C. Campbell Folk School has transformed lives, and brought people together in a nurturing environment for experiences in learning and community life that spark self-discovery. We offer year-round weeklong and weekend classes for adults in craft, art, music, dance, cooking, gardening, nature studies, photography and writing. All students and visitors are encouraged to become a part of the community through all-school activities such as concerts, dances, presentations and meals. We hope you will join us and be a part of our incredible community. We invite you to find your place at the Folk School.
