Blue Stone Folk School is partnering with Noblesville Preservation Alliance and the Hamilton County Convention and Visitors Bureau to explore possibilities to offer programing within the historic Judge Stone House. This partnership begins Monday when we host Meat ‘n Tators Ukulele Construction Class. During this week long class students from as far away as Boston will learn to build a soprano ukulele.
There are plans to explore keeping the woodshop in place to offer further programing which may include Shaker Boxmaking, woodcarving, and luthiery (instrument building) projects. Further programing possibilities will focus on stabilization and restoration of the house. These classes would focus on rebuilding historic windows and sash, door frames, interior woodwork, wood floors, etc.
We continue to be excited about our current space within the cellars of the historic Craycraft House. It has always been our intention to find, develop and use under utilized spaces throughout Noblesville. We will seek ways that these spaces can work together to provide a variety of unique traditional programing.
Over the next week, or so, this space will explore the house, its condition, its potential and our progress building ukuleles.
