Our semester-long classes are designed to give students a complete immersion in folk craft and artistry. After the successful completion of a semester-long class, some students will use this introduction knowledge to enter the Folk School Apprenticeship Program (details coming soon).

A Folk School Sampler offers an introduction to four (4) craft mediums - leather, wood, fiber, and paper. Students in this course will utilize historical evidence, proper terminology, the science of material, mathematical reasoning, and reverse-engineering to better comprehend each craft medium. Students will use their developing craft skills to develop projects within each craft medium. Student projects include a kitchen broom, botanical-infused paper, leather-bound journal, shaker box, spoon.

The mediums of leather, paper, and fiber will encompass two class sessions. Wood will encompass three class sessions.

This course is for the student who is committed and serious about folk craft. This is not for the dabbler. There will be research homework assigned and a student evaluation will be given at the end of the semester.

Age range: Between ages 9 and 18
