My trip to John C Campbell Folk School

Guitar across from rest stop in TN

 Pam and I started out early on June 9th for our week at John C Campbell Folk School. We took a marionette class with Leslie Molen. It was a very long drive to our first destination, Ashville, NC where we spent the night. One interesting thing we saw was this giant guitar in Tennessee across from a rest stop.

I forgot to take pictures in Ashville, but we stayed at the Hampton Inn which was very nice and we went downtown to eat at Modesto, a great little restaurant. We got a table on the sidewalk and it was a beautiful evening for dining out.

Sunday morning we walked around the galleries downtown and saw some of Akira Blount's dolls - just lovely! Then we left for JCC and registered and went to our room which was at the Field House. It is one of the nicer places to stay there. Five o'clock was orientation and six o'clock was dinner. After dinner our class met at the Fibers Studio, which was conveniently located across the street from our room, where Leslie discusses what we would be doing all week.
