Learn a new skill or technique amid the beauty of the bluffs

Relax amid the beauty of the bluffs as you learn a new skill or technique this summer.  I know that you will enjoy Running Dog Ranch located atop a bluff on an old Swedish farmstead.  I have assembled a line up of interesting classes at Running Dog Ranch Folk Craft and Learning Center that I think you will like, too.  Take a look below.

Find out more about the instructors and fees for the classes here.

I still have openings in all these classes.  Normally, I like to get the reservations for the class two weeks in advance so that I can get the materials, alert the instructor, and prepare for the class.  I am offering you the opportunity to sign up for the Travel Journal and the Birch Tree Painting classes even though one is a week away and the other is near the two week cut off. 

If you make your reservation four weeks in advance, you will receive a 5% discount on the class fee.  If you are a resident of Bay City, Maiden Rock, Stockholm, or Pepin, you also receive a discount.  You can receive one discount per class.     

Make reservations soon for the classes you want by contacting me.

We’d love to see you,
