Andrews woodturner, Marty Libman, has donated a hollow wood turned vessel made of Ambrosia Maple. Libman discovered the Folk School 12 years ago and has since been involved as both a student and an instructor. He is president of the Brasstown Woodturners Guild and his studio, Nantahala Country Workshop, is located in downtown Andrews. Libman loves the “feeling of family and fellowship at the Folk School — both in and out of classes.” Gala & Benefit Auction tickets are available at the Folk School’s Craft Shop and online at www.folkschool.org. Tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, $15 for “Friends of the Folk School” (donors who have given over $500 in 2011) and include admission, hors d'oeuvres and two drink tickets.
