“Very cool place with lots of talented people, beautiful art, and great scenery! Highly Recommended”

“I am 26 and I have gone 3 times now. It usually takes me a year to save up enough money for the week and the trip but I have never been disappointed. This past year I was in their work/study program and it changed my life! I am planning on applying for their 4 month host position and it is my goal to find a job close enough to move there and get a chance to take more classes! The accommodations make you feel as if you never left home and you will truly make life long friends.”

“The surrounding hills and greenery of the farmhouses and the campus are relaxing and conducive to creativity. The Scandinavian folk school style suits me with their morning walks in the woods, song and story telling before breakfast, serious working atmosphere in the classes, visits to local studios, folk dance evenings, and of course their very good food. Give it a try.”
