Wander through campus and see craft in action! From blacksmithing, to bowl-turning, to net-making, there will be plenty of craft to check out under the timber frame here at North House. Starting June 22, 2017, one of our instructors will be on campus from 10:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m., Thursday to Sunday, demonstrating their craft and answering questions.

In addition, our instructor-in-residence will be a weekly mini class offered on Saturdays at 10:00 a.m. Please register by 9:00 a.m. the day of the mini class by calling us at (218) 387-9762. The cost for these mini classes is $20 per person or $30 per adult/child pair. Minimum age requirement and additional materials fee may apply depending on the course.
