Nyle Zikmund introduced Greg Wright, Director of the North House Folk School in Grand Rapids, Minnesota.  The educational non-profit was established in 1997 by local artisans who wanted to share their knowledge of traditional crafts.  The first catalog featured 23 classes, but since then the school has grown steadily to over 450 course offerings taught by over 160 instructors.  Prior to Covid-19 over 3,000 students per year, from all over the globe, learned a craft at North House.  While Covid has greatly reduced the number of classes, donors have stepped up to keep the school in excellent financial condition.  Everyone is excited to return to normal as the pandemic wanes.

Although a variety of crafts can be learned, the focus of instruction is on traditional northern crafts.  The goal is to inspire lifelong learning in a positive and non-competitive environment, while also promoting and preserving the knowledge and skills of these crafts for future generations.

North House holds three major public events each year: The Wooden Boat Show, The Winter’s Gathering and The Big Top Music Event.  Any of these would be worthy of a trip to Grand Marais to learn more about the school.  Click here to plan a trip.

Geoff Hollimon reported that the Suburban Ramsey Emergency Coalition is planning their Virtual 3 Mile Walk/Run for the week of May 9-16.  Participants design and run/walk the route on their own and report their accomplishment to the coalition.  Watch for more details, soon.  The Coalition has made a second Covid impact grant to Quincy House.
