Folk School



The Ely Folk School is a wonderful new addition to the community.  Even in the winter months most weeks have one or more fun classes as well as dances, concerts and other events to enjoy.

The Folk School seeks to preserve and celebrate Ely’s cultural art heritage.  Located on Ely’s busy main street, it provides fun and educational classes year-round.  Learn to weave an ash basket, make beaded or copper jewelry, try your hand at quilting a lovely bag, work on an authentic birch bark canoe, and so much more.
