The idea of folk school in Ely has been rumbling around for a while and this weekend, their dream will become a reality.

The first Ely Folk School will include teaching traditional crafts and arts.  

In addition to writing, glass blowing and making cheese board members of the school hope it will be a great tourist attraction and want to offer residents more educational opportunities. 

“Just a vibrant contributor to the community is what we hope to be a part of in Ely,” said Board Member, Susan Polage.

Classes would be very short and geared towards adults.

The school opens Saturday, June 6th. 

A celebration will be held from 4-7 p.m.
