WEEK IN THE WOODS

2017 Session:  June 24 – June 28

Week in the Woods, a program of The Folk School, is an opportunity to leave our everyday routines behind and gather in the remote boreal forest, learning and creating in a multi-generational community. It is a rare chance to live and study with an amazing cast of instructors, including woodworkers, craftspeople, artisans, and naturalists.

The week is a dialogue with nature, a unique experience of learning, creating, reflecting, and building community. Participants will be exposed to new ways of seeing and appreciating the forest, experiencing the connection between natural history and the creative process. During this transformational week individuals of all ages, from children to octogenarians, come together to live and learn in the best of all classrooms, the woods.
