Adirondack Folk School announces annex, offers record number of new classes for 2022

Those with the Adirondack Folk School, located in Lake Luzerne, NY, said they were pleased to announce the opening of the Alfred Z. Solomon Lake George Annex, adding that the school intends to launch a record number of brand new classes and workshops this year.

Have you ever wanted to try your hand at making a basket or a canoe? Would you like to learn to weave or try blacksmithing? The Adirondack Folk School, the only nonprofit organization of its kind in the region, is offering a record-setting 280 hands-on classes and workshops for everyone interested in learning the crafts and traditions that make our region unique. Expanded opportunities are made possible through generous support from the Moore family, allowing the Adirondack Folk School to announce that it has opened a new space in the Lake George Outlets. Further support from the Alfred Z. Solomon Foundation has allowed AFS to equip the space for an array of classes. The new space—The Alfred Z. Solomon Lake George Annex—is located in the Log Jam Outlets directly behind the Log Jam Restaurant on Route 9 in Lake George.

Coinciding with the launch of AFS’s 2022 Classes and Workshops, is a brand-new website to make learning about, and registering for classes, even easier for students.
