Enrich the resiliency and vibrancy of individuals and communities through joyful learning, creative cultural expression, and appreciation of folklife

Dear Arbutus Supporters,

After careful consideration, the Arbutus Folk School Board of Directors have decided to suspend face-to-face classes through December 14th in compliance with recently published statewide restrictions. We acknowledge the recent rapid spread of the COVID-19 and want to ensure the greatest possible protections for our staff, instructors, volunteers, and students.

We will miss seeing you in our woodworking, ceramics, and blacksmithing classes for the next few weeks, but look forward to resuming classes as soon as restrictions are lifted. At the end of the year and into 2021, we will be offering all the courses currently affected by the state mandate, as well as restarting fiber arts and other much-awaited subjects. We look forward to a great course catalog for the new year!

We understand that art and art-making are important in our lives at all times and even more important this year as we distance physically from one another.  We remain committed to keeping our community strong and creative in this challenging year.

Stay tuned, and stay safe,

Arbutus Board of Directors & Team
