Upcoming Driftless Folk School Classes

As we aspire to make our classes available to anyone who truly wishes to participate, and at the same time to support our instructors with respect and gratitude, we now list our courses with “Sliding Scale” payment options, and this includes Gift Certificates as well. To help you decide which level is for you, we offer the following guidelines:

Supporter Level Ticket
If you are someone who moves in the world with relative financial ease – with the means to fulfill many of your wants as well as your needs - consider paying at this level, which will support both the Folk School and its instructors, along with others in the community.

Sustainer Level Ticket
If you need to budget your educational and entertainment spending – perhaps you can take classes and eat out occasionally as long as you are mindful – consider paying at this level, which will help sustain the Folk School at a modest level.

Supported Level Ticket
If you struggle to fund your basic needs, or carry a burden of debt or support for others in your family or community, consider paying at this level, allowing the Folk School and our contributors to fulfill our goals toward supporting and enriching our community.
