Forest Folk Workshop

December 16, 9:00am – noon

presented by Madison Woods

Join us for a morning of woodland magic with Madison Woods of  Wild Ozark and Forest Folk for a hands-on workshop creating one-of-a-kind magical creations from natural materials. Just in time for the holidays, participants will create and take home beautiful forest-inspired woodland creatures: fairies, gnomes, dwarves, elves, pixies, trolls, sprites, Saint Nicks and more. Crafted from foraged forest materials and found objects, the only limits are your imagination. All the materials you need in order to create a unique gift or treasured heirloom will be provided.

Madison Woods is the driving force and creative genius behind the Forest Folk of Wild Ozark, a passionate teacher, purveyor of American ginseng, fine woodworking, natural arts and crafts, and along with her husband at Burnt Kettle, shagbark hickory syrup.

Class fee of $25 per person includes all materials. Tickets are non-refundable. This class is limited to 15 people ages 12 and up.

An Evening with Jesse Dean and Melody Pond

Friday, December 29, 7:00 – 9:00 pm

Join us for of an evening of folk, blues and rock with Northwest Akansas favorites Jesse Dean and Melody Pond celebrating the release of Jesse’s new cd Arkansas Amplifier and Melody Pond’s Songs From the Road from their 2016 tour.

Local son Jesse Dean’s edgy blues-rock originals showcase soulful bass lines, muscular lead and rhythm guitar, vibrating riffs and sultry jams.

Rooted in the earthiness of folk, Melody Pond keeps it fresh by merging modern indie influences with throwback moods of funk and blues, with jazz inspired vocals reminiscent of Billie Holiday and The Boswell Sisters. The duo has been compared to modern artists Rising Appalachia, First Aid Kit, and The Ditty Bops. Melody Pond performs original songs by Candy Lee and Emily Rowland.

Jesse’s new cd Arkansas Amplifier will be on sale. Refreshments will be served.

Admission is free, but donations to Ozark Folkways will be gratefully accepted, so that we can continue to provide events like this.
