About Us

North House Folk School is a dynamic, young educational nonprofit committed to teaching traditional northern crafts while fostering life-long learning. The school’s curriculum emphasizes hands-on learning and includes courses ranging from timber framing to northern ecology, birch bark weaving to artisan bread baking. The North House campus is located in northeastern Minnesota on the shore of Lake Superior and includes three rustic timbered classroom buildings, a small house, and a 50’ gaff-rigged schooner. During a typical year, over 80 regional artisans and crafts-people are featured as instructors. Interns play an active role in day-to-day campus coordination while also participating in a thematically-focused craft study immersion.
