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.
