Go behind-the-scenes of an inspiring annual event, building community with amazingly talented craftspeople across Michigan.
Play a lead role developing and running one of Michigan’s premiere folk festivals with the Michigan Folk School at Staebler Farm Park. A one-day celebration of the folk movement, the Folk Festival combines food and music with an open house for artisans and an incredible opportunity for the public to try their hands at folk handicrafts (beating on a blacksmith's anvil, spinning a lathe, and much more).
Why folk? Folk crafts deeply enrich our experiences of being in the world—connecting minds and bodies to find flow, unplugging from frantic technology, and developing an intentional, ethical relationship with products in our lives.
