Blacksmith & Fine Craft Auction
The John C. Campbell Folk School is looking forward to our upcoming auction— the Blacksmith & Fine Craft Auction. This event will be held in the Keith House on Saturday, November 7, 2015, from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. This auction will feature amazing art from our instructors, resident artists, and students. We hope you will join us and auctioneers, Tim Ryan and Bob Grove, for a wonderful afternoon of togetherness, art, and camaraderie. This auction helps guarantee that the Folk School will continue to be a haven where artists can learn, work and be inspired.
Featured Artist: Lorraine Cathey
Lorraine has been a fiber artist for the past 15 years, creating heirloom mohair teddy bears and
whimsical, needle-felted bears and gnomes. Her needle-felting adventure began at the Folk School in 2004, and she has won numerous awards for her bears and needle-felted characters since then. Also a watercolor artist, Lorraine’s love of painting led her to create needle-felted landscapes. She was recently juried into the Southern Highland Craft Guild with this art and her bears. She has taught classes in Florida, Alabama, and North Carolina and is a member of several guilds and craft organizations. Believing that learning never ends, she conducts her classes with fun and a noncompetitive spirit.
