Future Folk School at 80 Bassett Road
We expect this to be the first of an ongoing series of fundraising events, the goal being to keep and maintain our property on Bassett road, for the purpose of educating the young, and the young at heart in Folk Crafts, Folk Music, Folk Dance, and in traditional agriculture and forestry as well. Our Folk School is already well on its way in the weaving Department. Those of you who have been to our Barn parties throughout the years know what a wonderful a location we have, and how important it is to continue to maintain and use the property. This barn party will be an opportunity to let people know of the new mission and to raise funds – both for operating expenses and for improvements. Of course, it would be a sample of things to come, too.
Fabric of Life is an educational organization dedicated to the preservation and passing on of knowledge and skills that enrich our daily lives. We strive to see traditional skills flourish in our modern world and make these educational opportunities available to future generations. Working together creating practical things of beauty not only improves quality of life, but also strengthens communities.
Vävstuga Weaving School will be collaborating with Fabric of Life on a new 16 week course of study at its Bassett Road Farm Studio.
