This little one is having big fun making a walking stick
Little Middle Folk School
Every summer the Folk School opens its doors to young folks ages 7-17 for Little/Middle Folk School. Scheduled for June 18-24, 2017, this fun week provides an opportunity for youths to discover Appalachian culture and to take part in hands-on programs in dozens of arts and crafts.
Participants are divided into two groups. "Littles" are rising second-graders to rising sixth-graders, and "Middles" are rising seventh-graders to rising twelfth-graders.
Little/Middle features nearly 30 youth classes. Be sure to register early, as these are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Little/Middle is full for 2017.

This week is designed to provide youths, ages 12 to 17, the opportunity to take classes side-by-side with a parent, grandparent, or other relative or guardian. We hope your family will join us for this memorable experience.
