Swan Bay Folk Art Center & Farm

in Port Republic, NJ

Nestled in the Pine Barrens of southern New Jersey is Swan Bay Folk Art Center, a place where people can come to learn skills from days gone by in order to create pieces of their own history.  For 25 years, Niki Giberson and her husband Gary have run Swan Bay Folk Art Center out of their home, a sheep farm settled on land that has been in Gary's family since 1637.  


Welcome, friends!  Pour yourself a cup of tea and see what new and exciting things are going on

                                                                                                 at the farm, gas station, studio, and classrooms!


All basket classes will resume Tuesday, January 6th.  We are so excited to start a year of new baskets for your creative enjoyment.


On the Second Tuesday of every month, Niki will be featuring a new basket, complete with a recipe and tasty treat to sample.  See what classes are being offered HERE.  

Did you know about our Friday Night Friendship Basket Classes???

Sign up for a class for your group of 5-10 people (Bible study, co-workers, bachelorette party, etc.), come for an evening of fun and creativity, and leave with a finished basket!
