Had to change plans a few times over the past weeks and months? More than a few?  We’re all making adjustments, to our schedules, to our expectations, to our dinner plans.  The same is true at Marine Mills Folk School.  We’d hoped to return to offering in-person classes by now, but we’ve made the tough but necessary decision to hold off until at least the end of the year.

When we first closed down the folk school we decided to skip remote classes because we hoped to be back together soon.  Guess what – another change!  We’re working to support our community in new and different ways.  We will begin offering some remote, distance learning, classes beginning in September, and we hope you’ll join us!  We’re excited to work with our instructors to offer fun, informative classes that will give all of us a way to connect virtually while sharing skills and advice, with some laughter thrown into the mix.

We are also continuing our video conversations with local artists and other community members.  This week we sat down with Cathy Wegener for the first of three conversations.  Wondering how to ‘build’ a working garden?  This episode focuses on how Cathy begins her process. You’ll be inspired — watch and listen!


Many of us don’t do well with uncertainty and change.  We get that, and those of us at Marine Mills Folk School would prefer to be hosting in-person classes.  But we’re adjusting our plans to the new Covid-19 reality.  Please join us and follow  state and CDC guidelines about social distance, masks and washing hands – we’ll be able to return to offering classes more quickly if we all take these precautions.  And in the meantime, we’ll be announcing our new remote classes soon – hope to see you at one of our classes!
