Our mission is to enrich lives and build community by teaching traditional northern crafts in a student-centered learning environment that inspires the hands, the heart and the mind.

North House Folk School brings instructors from around the world to teach traditional northern crafts on the shore of Lake Superior.

What is a folk school?

The best way to learn more about our mission is to experience it first-hand—take a course, attend an event, or visit our campus to see craft in action.

North House Folk School is a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit, and depends on the generous support of donors at many levels.
