Four Getaways for Crafty Travelers

Author: , March 13th, 2014

arts and craftsFor the artsy traveler, what better way to get acquainted with a destination’s culture than to learn a local craft? Participating in a workshop can be a daylong venture or even a weeklong retreat. Plus, whether you’re making moccasins or birch boxes or farmstead cheese, you’ll end up with a handmade souvenir to take home. Here, four immersive programs that let you do just that:

Life in the Adirondacks, in the past, was characterized by farming and logging. Get a glimpse of how people adapted to their surroundings and took advantage of the vast natural surroundings at Adironack Folk School, which offers more than 250 courses in Lake Lucerne, NY. Here, transform a gourd into a stylish purse ($95), make a pair of leather moccasins that keep your feet warm and dry in the winter ($95), or learn 19th century tinsmithing basics as you create a candle stick and wall sconce ($100). Through spring and summer, the school also hosts free evening programs like spinning, forging, and other lectures and demos.

The North House Folk School in the harbor town of Grand Marais is all about preserving Minnesota’s Scandinavian culture. Classes cover everything from the Norwegian painting technique known as rosemaling, to crafting Scandinavian/Russian birch bark boxes, to woodworking and furniture craft. Sample early-bird tuition rates: $45 for a half-day, $150 for two days, and $195 for three days of instruction, excluding material fees. Of course, this varies by class – metalsmithing, jewelry making, and others that involve special equipment or materials tend to be pricier.
