The Duluth Folk School does not have a single home location …at least, not yet.

We decided it would be better to build slow and strong, rather than to borrow money and put ourselves in an unsustainable financial position. This means that we will hold classes in several different locations.

We are going to be nomads.

Gypsy Caravan

Part of our profits every month will be set aside in a capital fund, which we will use to buy or build our permanent home.

Until then, we are partnering with several local venues to hold classes, including:

We’d love to have more partners and temporary homes. If you have access to a location that is:

  • In Duluth
  • Affordable
  • Available evenings and weekends
  • Able to accommodate 5-20 people

then please contact us!
