Family Day

We invite you and the young people in your life to come to the first-ever Marine Mills Folk School Family Day 2024! Experience folk school education via hands-on traditional arts and crafts and exposure to new skills and ideas.

In what we hope will become an annual event, we’re offering mini classes and demonstrations of some of our most popular classes, along with traditional folk arts, geared toward young learners. Children will be welcome to try Shibori dyeing, knitting, sewing, and more folk arts, with time and opportunity to make and take items home. Everyone will also have opportunities to observe and engage with Woodcarvers and Bluegrass musicians. Be inspired and to learn more about folk arts and Marine Mills Folk School!
