First Friday

MacRostie Art Center

The first Friday of every month is special at Northern Community Radio.   We've come to know it as the First Friday Cavalcade of arts.  Checking in with folks from around the listening area, we do our best to let our listeners know about first Friday arts happenings near them and give an idea of what kinds of arts events are happening throughout the month.  Northern Minnesota's art scene is vibrant and flourishing.

This First Friday weekend in Bemidji promises all kinds of art, all over town.  Pottery, jewelry, paintings, snowflake decorations, wood-turned bowls...

We spoke with Betty Firth from the Ely Folk School about the upcoming classes and events at the Folk School this month! We learned what a capote is(a coat made from a blanket) and learned about upcoming classes on chaga mushrooms, wirewrapping jewelry and more.  The Folk School will take a break from regular hours from December 15th thru January 13th, but will be open and offering a wide range of classes during the last half of January as they ramp up for the winter festival in Ely.
