Just for Folks


Author(s):
Abstract:
The John C. Campbell Folk School in Cherokee County's Brasstown, attracts yearly some 3,000 people, who study subjects from blacksmithing to writing. The school opened in 1925. The term folk school comes from the Danish language and means “a school for the people.” Thus, while folk traditions like pottery, weaving, and carving are studied there, people are also free to pursue non-folk interests, such as photography and genealogy, that help them to grow as creative people.
