The Folk School at Florida Maritime Museum

Fabric dyeing with plant base dye is one of several classes offered at The Folk School at Florida Maritime Museum.

The Folk School focuses on providing a supportive environment, a place where anyone can come to learn skills that instill in our community a sense of pride and dignity in our local culture. The classes we offer help preserve the folk skills and heritage crafts of Cortez Fishing Village, and early communities throughout Florida, that are at risk of being lost.

Through donations like yours we are able to keep costs low for students, purchase better supplies for routinely taught classes, offer more intensive training in subjects that require many materials, as well as ensure ongoing events and programming.
