Online Classes Return This Winter

The Folk School is excited to offer a new series of online classes from January – March 2023 in partnership with Lessonface, an innovative learning organization founded by previous Work Study student Claire Cunningham.

Choose from over 30 classes in a variety of subjects such as cooking, fiber arts, glass beadmaking, music, dance, painting, woodworking, and writing. Our online classes, just like our in-person ones, inspire non-competitive, hands-on learning in an encouraging and supportive environment. An instructor leads each session, offering demonstrations and conducting group feedback. Students are encouraged to delve into the finer points of their class subject and may participate in a Folk School orientation and closing ceremony. If you’re a returning Folk School student, you’re sure to reconnect with that magical feeling of being on our campus. First-time students will learn what it means to “Sing Behind the Plow.”

We are pleased to offer these online classes in varying lengths and formats, based on the topic and instructor. Class sizes range from 8 to 24 students. Tuition ranges from $60–$390, depending on class length and size. Material requirements will depend on the class topic and skill level. Some sessions require only a pencil, while other students will receive a personalized kit from the instructor.

Registration for these classes is now open. We hope you’ll join us from the comfort of your own home!
