My second week at the Folk School was spent just hanging out. The blacksmith was assisting in a class and I would be visiting with friends and enjoying the scenery.
One afternoon there were about 17 of us that went to a wine tasting at Cherokee Cellars in downtown Murphy.
Tuesday evening I watched Chitter and Chatter dance in the Keith house.
One of the blacksmithing students gave my blacksmith a 5 leaf clover!
This is the Olive D. Campbell dining hall where we ate our meals. As my friend Rita would say, "It's all in the presentation".
In the Davidson Hall the time travel cooking class was using the open hearth. The recipes and the equipment were from the 18th century.
That's one large fireplace!
I'd stop in for a listen occasionally at the intermediate mountain dulcimer class.
With just 3 students in the wood turning class, instructor Charles Watson had plenty of time to work with each of them.
Here are some samples of his work.
One night Charles did a demonstration on turning a bowl. The next day I was asking Charles why he didn't raffle the bowl. He wasn't happy with it he told me. I said darn I wanted to win it.
The next morning as we waited in line for breakfast, he handed me a bag. This is what was inside of it. Thank you so much Charles. I will treasure my cherry bowl.
