Duluth Folk School

Funny they didn't offer a series of classes on "how to rehab old water-damaged buildings."

But there are plenty of treats in store for visitors to 1917 W Superior Street.

The new home of the Duluth Folk School will not only offer classroom space, in an effort to diversify and make the venture sustainable, they'll be renting out studio space (each with a skylight), offering a marketplace with locally handcrafted goods from instructors and tenants, and debuting The Dovetail Cafe.

Ah, the folk school.

A place to make and do things with your hands, learn traditional crafts and skills and, if you're lucky, take a break from your real life for a few days and emerge refreshed - and cleverer than you were when you started.
