Jason Gold says, “The nonprofit Michigan Folk School, in Ann Arbor, builds community by providing classes that teach people traditional crafts like bread baking, woodworking, blacksmithing and medicinal wildcrafting. After six years of teaching classes in churches, libraries, colleges, farms, houses and backyards, we are taking a big step forward by partnering with Washtenaw County Parks to build a home campus at Staebler Farm.”
The campus will begin with a woodworking studio and a blacksmithing studio. Growth will allow more advanced classes, more types of classes, studio time and free community courses. There are plans for community garden space and a multipurpose building with a teaching kitchen.
