John C. Campbell Folk School

Community PartnerJohn C. Campbell Folk School provides experiences in non-competitive learning and community life that are joyful and enlivening. Located in scenic Brasstown, North Carolina, the Folk School offers year-round weeklong and weekend classes for adults in craft, art, music, dance, cooking, gardening, nature studies, photography and writing. Nestled on 300 acres in an enchanted valley, the Folk School offers folks who are visiting the area a chance to experience a special blend of history, art, and natural beauty. Rand McNally has identified the Folk School as one of the top 30 U.S. destinations in their “Best of the Road” listing. Visitors are always welcome to stop by.

Take a journey through time in our History Center, where 20th-century Appalachia is on display. See artifacts, from the old wood bench where the Brasstown Carvers began to the original photographs of world renowned photographer Doris Ulmann. Browse our Craft Shop. A founding member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild, the shop is a destination in itself. Representing the juried work of over 300 local and regional artists, the shop sells ironwork, pottery, jewelry, wood, metal, and handwovens, as well as a vast collection of books.

Visit our studios, where people just like you are creating their own works of art and discovering their spirit in the heart of Appalachia. The staff in the Keith House or Craft Shop can provide you with a campus map and weekly schedule.
