North House Folk School's mission is to enrich lives and build community by teaching traditional northern crafts in a student-centered learning environment that inspires the hands, the heart and the mind. North House is home of the Artisan Development Program, a 2-year fully funded residency for traditional craft artisans. The Artisan Development Program fosters the growth of the next generation of traditional craft artisans. It offers professional development including mentorship, education practice, and studio space for artisans committed to pursuing craft education as a professional path. Resident Artisans in the program build in-depth experience in their craft, while enhancing the vitality of North House Folk School. They cultivate meaningful relationships, develop craft and teaching skills for future leadership, and forge connections with regional, national and international institutions and artisans.
North House Folk School is on the harbor in Grand Marais Minnesota. Grand Marais is a small town (our whole county has about 5000 residents), and a beautiful place to call home.
