Alabama Folk School at Camp McDowell

Have you ever felt the desire to stitch a quilt? How about to contra dance, throw a pot, or try your hand in blacksmithing? Well here is your chance for a fun and relaxing getaway. Camp McDowell, located near Jasper, AL, invites you to come enjoy one of our many classes at the Alabama Folk School at Camp McDowell. The school provides the opportunity for people to come and stay for a week or weekend in order to study a topic of their interest. You will have plenty of class time to dedicate to learning a new trait or just enjoying an old hobby as well as some off time to explore the beautiful surroundings. 

Our retreat center has modern accommodations and is situated on over a
thousand acres of forests, canyons and waterfalls. We will be offering
a variety of classes ranging from book binding, journaling and basketry
to chair making, blacksmithing, and pottery just to name a few. Each
night, following dinner, there will also be a social hour where you
might learn to do a simple activity, go for a hay ride or listen to
various blue grass artists. We hope that you will come and join in our
fun and if you have any questions or comments feel free to let us know!
