Diana and Cassie will be offering a number of activities this year at folk-camp, designed with younger people in mind, but with no age limit on participants. These activities include: clay bead-making and clay vessel (pot/cup/jar) making, pit-firing, beading, puppet making, and back-strap loom weaving (belt, headband, or bracelet). All activities are flexible and will be guided by the interest of the participants.
