Come spend 3 days getting acquainted with time-honored authentic skills and crafts at The Simple Life Folk School held annually at the Blue Ridge Institute and Museum in Ferrum.
Where else can you go and learn how to drive oxen, keep bees, learn log cabin building techniques & shingle making, cook on the hearth and make bread in the bake oven, learn about natural dyeing for cloth and fiber, study medicinal herbs, hook an early rug, sew a woman’s pocket and decorate it, learn the value of canning, make fried pies and hoecakes, or learn the art of blacksmithing or woodcarving? Or make a split oak basket or chair bottom? And that is only a fraction of the endless options!
The Simple Life Folk School is an ALL INCLUSIVE weekend that includes your choice of up to 4 workshop classes, 3 nights lodging, 7 meals and lots of nightly entertainment! Classes taught by the area’s best experts in early crafts and old-timey ways, delicious food, wonderful accommodations, and more fun than you can begin to imagine. Small class sizes ensure a quality, hands-on experience.
