Empty Bowls 2018

Help alleviate hunger in our community by joining us for our annual Empty Bowls fundraiser on March 24 from 5-7 p.m. We'll gather in the Olive Dame Campbell Dining Hall for a fun evening of good food prepared by the Folk School's dining hall staff, and lively musical entertainment. The popular Brown Bag Raffle returns this year with many opportunities to win one-of-a-kind pottery items.

Admission is $35 and includes a handmade bowl of your choice and a hearty meal of soup, bread, salad and dessert. Tickets go on sale in March 5, 2018. Tickets will be available at the Folk Schools Craft Shop, Cherokee County Chamber in Murphy and United Community Bank in Hayesville (cash or check only). All proceeds will go to the Clay County Food Bank and the Sharing Center Food Bank in Cherokee County.

Special thanks to all the local potters for making and donating bowls for this important event!

Easter Egg Hunt

An annual favorite for kids is the Saturday before Easter on March 31. Bring your children at 1 p.m. to hunt for filled Easter eggs. There will be three areas for egg hunting, divided by age: 1-4, 5-8, and 9 & older.

This event is free and held at the Open House. We ask that you please park in the gravel lot across from the Keith House to allow plenty of space for egg hunting and for the safety of the participants.

Please arrive early - the hunt begins promptly at 1:00 pm and doesn't last very long!

There will be live music during the event.
