Overview

The Adirondack Folk School is a nonprofit organization that teaches the arts, crafts, and heritage of the Adirondacks, promoting creativity, self-reliance, sustainability, and cultural preservation.

The mission of the Adirondack Folk School is to inspire the hands, heart, and mind by teaching the traditional arts, crafts, and culture of the Adirondacks in an interactive and non-competitive learning environment.

The school promotes the development of quiet economic sustainability for the community and the surrounding areas. In addition to their hands-on courses, Adirondack storytellers and musicians share the culture of the Adirondacks through demonstrations, special programs, and fireside evening gatherings.

Courses include: basketry, blacksmithing, boats and paddles, chair caning and weaving, children's crafts, cooking and foods, drawing and painting, fiber arts, gardening, glass arts, jewelry, leather craft, music, nature studies and outdoor skills, photography, rustic furniture, timber framing, traditional crafts, woodcarving, woodturning, and woodworking - all with a focus on Adirondack cultural preservation. 

The Adirondack Folk School is supported by tuition, memberships, donations, and grants.

Come take a class, attend a special evening fireside program, or just stop by and visit. Experience the joy of hands-on learning, and take home a piece you crafted yourself or a skill you've learned that reminds you of the Adirondacks.
