A Special Message to our Ely Folk School community, near and far

Following the Governor’s recommendations, we have been closed to the public. Betty Firth, our Program Coordinator, has been working from home primarily, writing grants to fund new programs and support existing ones. We’ll keep in touch with you regarding plans to reopen.  Read more here…

From ethnic cooking classes to basket weaving, jewelry making, furniture building, photography, fabric arts, writing, painting and other arts, stained glass making, gardening, sustainable living, herbs and health, foraging, canoeing and canoe building, dances and music, there are classes for most every interest at Ely Folk School, conveniently located at the top of the hill in downtown Ely, Minnesota.
