We have a few different types of events.

  • Craft Fairs where we’re selling our handmade products and class samples
  • Appearances when when we will be somewhere representing the Folk School and practicing demonstrations but not actively teaching
  • Classes are when we’re actively teaching mostly in the spring, summer, and fall. We have access to an indoor classroom, an outdoor classroom tent, and our smithy

These events will be marked in the schedule below.
