John C. Campbell Folk School

For more than 90 years, the John C. Campbell Folk School has encouraged all students and guests to become a part of the community through all-school activities such as concerts, dances, presentations, and meals. 

The Folk School's Craft Shop represents more than 300 juried craftspeople and features an impressive collection of traditional and contemporary Appalachian craft, including jewelry, pottery, wood, fiber, ironwork, basketry, and other disciplines. You'll find marquetry earrings, clay serving platters, turned-wood bowls, functional fireplace poker sets and many more unique items. The Craft Shop is also proud to be the home of the world-renowned Brasstown Carvers.

A book room houses hundreds of instructional and celebratory books on everything from Basketry to Writing. Buy a few art supplies or a CD from our collection of traditional Appalachian music. You can take home a Folk School t-shirt, hat or bag as a souvenir. Find the perfect scenic postcard to tell everyone back home about your visit to the Folk School.
