Our Ely Folk School is resilient!   With a little help from our friends like you during these challenging times, we’ll remain so!  Thanks for your Give to the Max gift.

We’ve pivoted to zoom classes (very popular!) and safe socially-distanced small-group onsite classes, including our new ceramics program.

In November and December, Ely Folk School is hosting both online and onsite classes. The school is also putting together a robust class lineup for the Ely Winter Festival February 4-14. Check our website for all upcoming class news.

“In these challenging times, ‘resilience’ has been our catchword,” said EFS coordinator Betty Firth.  “We’re pleased with the generous community support of our programs.  And we’re excited to have hired an additional staff person, Lucy Soderstrom.”

Since childhood, Lucy (see her picture below) has spent summers at her family’s cabin near Ely and with area YMCA programs as a camper and counselor. A recent University of Puget Sound graduate in International Relations, Lucy studied in Morocco, Qatar and Netherlands. Given her focus on sustainable business development in small communities, she’s excited to connect with the Ely community through EFS.
