During this workshop quilters, basket makers and painters pursue their arts in a beautiful, encouraging atmosphere while others fully immerse themselves in old-time music, their days and nights filled with classes taught by master musicians, jam sessions, concerts and group performances. Classes include…

Banjo I | Banjo II | Basket Making | Fiddle I | Fiddle II |  Flatfoot Dancing | Gee’s Bend Quilting | Guitar I | Guitar II | Mandolin | Old Time Repertoire | Oil Painting | Ukulele | Mini Classes

Participants register for one class that includes six in-depth sessions in that discipline. Afternoon band labs give participants a chance to form a string band and work up a performance, take part in group singing, or begin to learn to play an instrument new to them, such as harmonica, ukulele or bass. Instructors for those mini-classes will provide a few loaner instruments.

Check-in for Old Time Music & Crafts begins at 4 p.m. on October 13. The workshop ends after lunch on October 16.
