Decorah Now Skills School Network

In Northeast Iowa ​there are many classes and workshops for learning a variety of skills:

  • hands-on traditional skill​s like basketry, carving, cooking, and ​building
  • the ways of woods, waters, gardens, and fields​, ​and
  • cultural skills such as music making, dancing, storytelling, arts and crafts.

​Decorah Now encourages you to participate in these classes, not only because they’re enjoyable, but also because by learning these skills in the company of others we can all cultivate resilience in our homes, towns, and region.

​​Included in the Skills School Network ​section of Decorah Now are some of the classes offered through Vesterheim Museum, Winneshiek County Conservation, Seed Savers Exchange, Decorah Public Library, Pepperfield Project, ArtHaus, Oneota Co-op, Luther College / Center for Sustainable Communities, Blue Heron Knittery, and More.
