Those of us in the folk school world hold N.F.S. Grundtvig, a Dane who lived in the 1800’s, in high regard. Although a bit of a cranky disrupter, he developed key tenants that are embedded in the folk school movement:
- Self-directed learning from others in a non-competitive environment
- Importance of community and civic engagement
- Life-long learning
Grundtvig didn’t believe that learning stopped when someone graduated from high school or college, and neither do we. Life-long learners will find a home at Marine Mills Folk School. Here students of all ages challenge themselves to learn a new traditional craft in a supportive environment, sharing their experience and knowledge. Bring a friend or come on your own and experience the joy of learning and creating. We think Mr. Grundtvig would be pleased.
