About

Community.  How is it done?  At Portland Folk School, people who love what they do pass on their know-how to people who want to learn & share & grow.  Making a circle.

Folk Schools are based on 19th-century Danish thinker N.F.S. Grundtvig’s ideas and have grown into the modern folk education movement sweeping North America.  All ages find ways to learn informally, in a non-competitive atmosphere, studying music, cooking, gardening or even woodworking.  In a Folk School learning can make a difference in the quality of your life.

Portland Folk School is an arts education organization founded in Portland, Oregon to serve the entire metropolitan area.

“We bring people who know how and what to teach together with people who want to learn.”
