Folk School Classes

Folk School at Folklore Village
Learn a new skill in the beautiful countryside of the Driftless region of
Southwestern Wisconsin!  

Folklore Village’s new Folk School debuted in 2018, with a Scandinavian theme.  Join us in 2020 as we continue to expand our offerings to include both Scandinavian and non-Scandinavian offerings in the fields of craft, vernacular architecture, music, singing, dancing, writing, storytelling, and foodways.

Lunch is included in your registration!  Cheers to Cobblestone Coffee House in Dodgeville, who will be providing our lunches every day of class!  https://www.facebook.com/Cobblestonecoffeehouse/
