AFS Temporary Closure

by admin

The top priority of the Adirondack Folk School is to provide students and artisan-instructors a safe, healthy and enjoyable learning environment. In an effort to do so amid concerns regarding COVID-19, we will be postponing classes until further notice. We will continue to monitor the situation, and will postpone classes further out as necessary. Any student enrolled in these classes will be offered the option to use their tuition towards a future class. We are asking students to defer requests for cash or credit card refunds during this critical window of time. We will resume our normal refund policy following this crisis. After we are able to return to normal operations, we will refund students affected by our closure as quickly as possible. Students should check back here or on our social media pages for updates as we work to reschedule classes. We appreciate your patience during this time. Should you have any questions, or need to get in touch, please email us at We appreciate your support of our school and hope to see you again soon!

So, if you’re traveling through Albany Airport this year, be sure to stop by Terminal A to see our display.

Thank you Tom Stock and Julie Hutchinson for your artistic and technical expertise to help us make the most of this wonderful opportunity!
