Traditional Crafts & Skills

What are “Traditional” Skills?

From our perspective at Lost Creek they are any skills in which you can take a raw material and with some knowledge, skills and basic tools, create an item from that material. It would also include just knowledge or skills too (such as Tracking or shooting a wooden Long Bow)

Consequently, by doing the above you also LEARN, and CONNECT with nature and other people. Lost Creek decided to call this traditional aspect of what we do our “Folk School”.

The originator of the folk school idea was Nikolaj Frederik Severin Grundtvig and his belief that “all people should have access to education according to their own needs and interests.”

On that note we welcome you to check out our current calendar or leave a comment here on what YOU would like to see us offer next.
