North House Folk School at 20

In the classroom my leather tote bag class was held at North House Folk School is a splendid wall installation, with small samples showing the variety of craft at North House. From the information sheet:

In celebration of twenty years of hands-on learning at North House, all instructors, current and emeritus, intern alumni and staff were invited to contribute to [a] group project to reflect the broad range of skills, interest and materials that are part of North House Folk School. The project is comprised of individual pieces displayed as one work – a mosaic of craft. North House is unique in the ever-evolving array of traditional northern crafts that are part of the school and community. The finished piece is intended to convey the individual personalities and interests of the many members of our community as well as a larger sense of connection to North House, the folk school tradition and the northern landscape.
