Villages Folk School

809 1st Street

The Villages Folk School specializes in providing learning experiences in traditional arts and skills, while drawing upon the uniqueness of each of the scenic and historic Villages of Van Buren County Iowa. We offer a setting in which individuals can return to a simpler time and witness the importance of the artisan in village-life.

Villages Folk School classes include hands-on learning in arts and crafts, fine arts, nature study, and traditional time honored skills relating to the home. Our carefully selected blend of classes allows people to return to times when things were simpler and creativity was a way of life.

Our Classes are exciting and varied, just like the unique Villages of Van Buren where they are taught. Learn to paint, quilt, make pottery, forge iron, draw, sculpt, spin, weave, garden, and much more. Relax, create, unplug, and get away from it all in scenic Van Buren County.
