Building a Folk Arts School at Shakori Hills and expanding our partnerships with local artists’ and crafters’ guilds is one of our great dreams for the future.
The arts of woodturning, weaving, carving, pottery, glass blowing, painting and many more sustainable craft forms thrive here already, so this is a natural step in our evolution. The goal in this dream is to provide a venue and forum to share local talent where others can learn, practice, and gain a skill to be passed down to future generations.
We also envision a covered performance space to allow for year-round programming. A venue that could showcase music talent as comfortably as weddings and community gatherings.
We will continue to offer art and music classes and work with the community to develop a vision for the Arts Center and the land.
Going forward, Shakori Hills only plans to grow and continue to have a positive impact through music and arts.
Your contributions will help us reach our vision of giving back to our community by making the Shakori Hills Community Arts Center a place for everyone to enjoy now and for decades to come!
