Folklife Workshops are small, hands-on programs led by local folk artists and tradition bearers that engage participants in the diverse cultural heritage of our region. Participants learn the meanings, materials, and techniques of a cultural tradition practiced locally in a structured lesson, where they create their own work under the guidance and instruction of the workshop teacher. These family-friendly programs provide an opportunity for local folk artists to share their cultural knowledge and practices with a wider audience, and for members of the community to come together and celebrate cultural exchange.
