When I visited the craft village at the Folk Center, I was surprised and delighted. I didn't expect so much to be going on - They have all these little buildings where locals, many dressed in old-time clothes, demo how traditional crafts used to be made. I saw candle-making, basket-weaving, blacksmithing, printing (for a newspaper), an herb garden and some others. I was impressed enough by my visit to check out their website where I have read about workshops they offer. I plan to take a workshop sometime in the next couple years.

My husband and I had a wonderful time here. I was fascinated watching dulcimers being hand crafted in a shop and the musical show is great. It was a lot of fun!

One needs a full day to explore this attraction. You could spend one full day talking to one of the many artists. They are all knowledgable and kind. This is a good location for people of all ages. The music during the day and evening are great.

I was afraid my 5 and 7 year old sons would get bored. I was wrong. They loved it as much as I did. I wish we had allocated more time. The staff was wonderful.
