canoeIf only I didn't live so far away from The North House Folk School, I'd be hanging around there a lot. The number of classes they have is amazing. Birch bark canoes, blacksmithing, tool making, timber framing, fiber arts, on and on.

I'm just looking at one page, and I'd take the class on making a crooked knife, and another on sharpening. They are in the northwest corner of Minnesota, on Lake Superior, up Highway 61 (yes, that same Highway 61 -- "…7th mother, 7th son…") from Duluth.    

Get their catalog if you like making things with your hands (or if you have kids who want to learn some hand-made skills).
