Extended Immersion Coursework

Extended Immersion Coursework

You asked, we’ve answered! In response to requests for longer courses and offerings that build beyond basic skills, we have worked with our instructors to develop new four and five day coursework that encourages students to do more than scratch the surface, including new courses and extended versions of popular existing courses.

We’ve aligned many of these new offerings so that “immersion weeks” will allow students to mix and mingle over lunch discussions, community gatherings and shared passion for northern craft. Start planning your craft immersion now!

We have gift certificates available in select amounts corresponding to one- two- and three-day courses. If you want one in a different amount just give us a call at 218-387-9762.
