Sustainability Weekend

This September weekend of intensive, hands-on workshops, offered in folk school fashion, provides the opportunity for deep skill learning in a chosen activity. With the backdrop of cultural sustainability unifying the weekend, individual workshops incorporate traditional knowledge, strategies and DIY tools for sustainable and historic architecture, traditional crafting, healthy eating, and community music making.

Workshops offered in 2017 included French-Canadian and Celtic Fiddle, Autoharp, Ukulele, Spoon Carving, American Old-Time Fiddle, Cob Oven Construction and Baking Techniques, Blacksmithing, Fermented Food & Drink, Log Cabin Reconstruction, and Mohair Cinch and Guitar Strap making.

Participants also came together to enjoy fine meals including a Farm-to-Table dinner, plus a staff concert and a spirited barn dance.
