Hands-on Cultural Learning

Learn, practice and explore Scandinavian folk arts and cultures through an array of educational and hands-on programs and events.

Learn a new skill, or practice your craft in our handcraft classes led by Master artisans and Makers. Connect time-honored Scandinavian food traditions with a bright New Nordic future (or just learn a new recipe!) in our Nordic Table classes. Pick up Swedish or Finnish, or fine tune your language skills with one of our many language-learning experiences for all skill levels.

ASI’s programming offers participants of all ages an opportunity to connect with one another and with communities around the world to connect our pasts to our shared future.
