2023 Lowell Folk Festival Folk Craft Area is July 28-30
8 Mentor Artist and Apprentice Teams Presenting Works
The 2023 Lowell Folk Festival (July 28-30) expects to welcome as many as 150,000 visitors to 3 days of music, dance, crafts, food, and family fun, celebrating a diverse range of folk arts. The Folk Craft Area, titled Apprenticeships: Carrying Traditional Knowledge Forward, focuses on the central role that the relationship between mentor and apprentice plays in keeping folk craft traditions alive.
The eight pairs of mentor/apprentice represent folk traditions from Indigenous traditions such as Wampanoag, Dakota adornment, Western Boot making, and New England ship wheels. Guests also have the opportunity to explore crafts that reflect our rich immigrant history with intricate Chinese paper cutting, Irish hand-lettered signs, and Dominican carnival mask making.
