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 5, 2016, 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: Helen Gibson
Helen Gibson, the Folk School’s Resident Woodcarver since 1990, is a Brasstown Carver in the famed local tradition. She studied with Jack Hall and is one of the few instructors who still carves and teaches the Brasstown Nativity figures she illustrates in her books, “Carving the Nativity” and “The Animals of the Nativity.” These, along with her books on carving Moses and St. Francis of Assisi, depict her highly detailed style of carving in the round. Helen teaches workshops throughout the Southeast.
