Welcome to the Folk School's website! It's not the same as actually being here, but we hope that you get a taste of how much fun it can be. For some it's an energizing, creative boost. For others, it's a peaceful learning vacation. For most, it's a worthwhile experience that is treasured for years to come.
For more than 90 years, the Folk School has encouraged all students and guests to become a part of the community through all-school activities such as concerts, dances, presentations and meals. People with varying interests are given a chance to come together through song, art, nature, gardening, cooking, storytelling and writing.
Carol Robinson, a recent student, said about her class experience, "Both instructors were excellent craftsmen and fine people. They went the 'extra mile' and more to instruct each student in what he or she wished to learn. It was a joy and a privilege to be in their class." Carol is not an exception. Many students have equally great things to say about their experience at a Folk School class and return again and again.
Try something new this year! Take a class that gets you started on that hobby you've always wanted to do. We hope that you will join us and be a part of our incredible community. We invite you to find your place at the Folk School.
