Photography, Knife Making, and Self-Defense Courses Highlight Upcoming Pine to Prairie Folk School Events
Fosston, MN — The Pine to Prairie Folk School in Fosston has a busy few weeks ahead of them with lots of opportunities for the community to learn new skills and crafts. The Pine to Prairie Folk School aims to connect community with craftspeople who are working to preserve and share the trades and knowledge. Classes this month include Guardian Angel Defense, a basic self-defense course for women on May 18th, Stamp Carving 101 on May 19th, a knife making class on May 21st, and Creating Impactful Images with Rules of Composition course on May 22nd. Jeff Olson of the Pine to Prairie Folk School says the knife making classes that they’ve done in the past have always drawn a lot of interest.
The cost of each class and the length vary, but most are held at Carver Performance in Fosston. More events are currently in the works for later this summer, including blacksmithing and woodburning, according to Olson.
The Pine to Prairie Folk School is always looking for new course offerings, but in order to that, they are looking for talented folks in the community who might be willing to teach those trades. While teaching a course may be intimidating, Olson and fellow instructor Steph Anderson says they will help guide you along in that process.
