At Stowe Hollow in middle Tennessee, we endeavor to learn and share the agrarian arts of our forefathers. In times past these skills yielded stout hearts, practical minds, and resilient homesteads - things that should never be considered old-fashioned. In a world which values everything produced at "drive-through" speed, we desire production that emphasizes care and precision. In a culture that accepts cheap quality, we seek to emphasize craftsmanship, creating artisan products carefully by hand. The School of Agrarian Arts is our effort to share a variety of homestead workshops open to the public. Some classes are agricultural in nature, while others are focused on healthy living and still others are simply enjoyable family crafts and activities from a bygone era. Whether we are off on an herb walk, building a chicken coop, or discussing the value of a "get-home bag", we invite you to join us in an effort to keep the Agrarian Arts alive.
A few times a month, as a special treat, we open the Three Sisters' Tearoom for our themed Friday Teas. Our guests come for a full afternoon tea and short artistic program; it's always different but it's always about TEA! Join our email list to stay up to date with our class and tea offerings.
