Welcome to Whatcom Folk School, a non-competitive adult and family education opportunity! We are here to inspire people to teach and learn some of the skills, techniques, knowledge, and crafts of everyday life to add to the vibrant, creative force of Whatcom County’s urban and rural countryside; to build resilience and strength by empowering ourselves.
Today a lot of people believe that as food and energy prices rise we’ll all need to work together to make sure our basic needs are met – to make sure everyone has food and warm shelter. We need to keep our local economy functional, to make sure our towns and neighborhoods are secure and safe for our children, including the natural world we all depend on.
Whatcom Folk School provides an opportunity, through each of you who are willing to teach, to strengthen and bring resilience to the communities of Whatcom County.
We are looking forward to hearing from you whether you are interested in teaching a class, taking a class, advertising your business in our catalog, or supporting the mission and vision with a donation!
Enjoy exploring the website and considering how YOU fit into our local folk school – Whatcom Folk School!
