In response to the enormous enthusiasm we got from all of you, we are also looking for ways to build a folk education outside a typical class structure, in a more grassroots way. How can we have more ongoing, self-organized gatherings, work-parties, skill-shares, and workshops? What else can we figure out to make it easier to learn what we want and need to learn? The work of a folk school is what we make it. Right?

We are excited to offer a full weekend of classes in both May and July, taught by skilled local educators, craftspeople, scientists, tradespeople, small business owners, and members of our Willamette Valley communities. Today, we are opening our MAY classes for registration. Read below to see a full list of classes by date, or visit our website to view classes by category and register today!

In 2023, Tarweed hosted about 30 classes, taught by two dozen fantastic teachers! In 2024, we want to offer a similar volume of classes, this time spread across the seasons, beginning with our first weekend of classes on May 11th and 12th. Our 2024 season will continue with classes on July 20th and 21st. We plan on hosting classes in the Fall as well and there will be more details on those dates in a future newsletter.
