The Clearing



Paper Arts are alive and well in Door County! The Clearing Folk School is one of the most beautiful places on this enchanted peninsula. When you are at The Clearing you are far away from the rest of the world - it is a place for solitude as well as fellowship, for contemplation as well as creativity, not to mention the incredible food and wonderful dorms. They give tours on Sunday afternoons - treat yourself to a tour, or a class or two. Whether bookbinding, Marbling, Box Making, Photography, Watercolor Painting, Poetry, Hiking, Journaling, Quilting, or many, many other wonderful topics of interest, you will find it here, along with a warm welcome! Enjoy some photos of the Paper Arts Classes below!

Two fun-filled days at The Clearing for a Marbling/Box Making Workshop. The marbling was messy, fun, and the class was wildly productive, making beautiful papers. The second day was just as much fun, creating notebooks, journals, and boxes with their marbled papers. The Clearing, as always, was serene and lovely.
