Class Registrations

Class Size: The number of registrants for day-long classes depends on the type of class being taught as well as the preferences of the instructor.  If a class has less than the minimum number of registrants as of the cut-off day for the class, the instructor has the option of canceling the class and you will be given a full refund.

Age Limits: Unless otherwise noted, all classes are for students ages 13 and up. The KID CLASSES are for ages 6 to 106; adults are welcome to attend KIDS classes with or without a KID with each attendee paying the listed class fee.

Class fees: A non-refundable deposit is due at time of registration.  If you are registering within 6 weeks of the class date, the class fee must be paid in full.           
          Deposits are as follows:
$50 per student for classes that are $100 or more
               $25 per student for classes that are from $40 to $99
               $5 per student for classes that are from $5 to $39

Remaining registration fees are due six weeks prior to class.  Two months prior to class we will send you a reminder notice listing fees due. 
If the balance of your class fees is not paid in a timely manner your space in class as well as your deposit may be forfeited.

Materials Fee: If any, is due on the first day of class.

Confirmation and Materials List
: Your registration will be confirmed with either an e-mail or letter, depending on your mode of registration. Most classes will have the materials list posted on the website.  If not, prior to class you will receive: (1) a listing of general supplies needed for class, and, ( 2) a list of supplies received for the materials fee.  If you have registered for dorm housing, you will also receive information about housing policies and a list of what to bring.


Cancellations:  Due to our small class sizes, each registered student is critical to our success.  If you need to cancel, please do so as quickly as possible so that your space might be made available to someone else.

We do have minimum enrollment numbers for each class, so please register as early as possible to avoid class cancelltions.  If it is necessary for Wee Folk Creations to cancel a class, all registered students will be notified immediately and will receive a full refund.

Refunds: For cancellations received more than 6 weeks prior to class there will be full refund of all fees paid minus a service fee that is equal to the minimum deposit for that class.  There is no refund for cancellations received less than 6 weeks prior to class except for emergency situations, which will be determined on an individual basis.






The upper floor of the classroom building is a 9-bed, 6-bedroom facility that includes 2 furnished kitchens and 2 bathrooms with a combination tub and shower. A third bathroom with shower facilities is accessible on the lower level.

Four of the beds are in single rooms, 2 are in a double room and there is one triple - real dormitory style!  A porch off one of the kitchens offers a relaxing place to welcome dawn or dusk and to sip one's morning coffee or afternoon tea.


 Beds vary in price from $35 to $70 per night, plus 6.5% MN sales tax.  Prices are listed on the Inside the Dormitory page as well as on the on-line registration form for each class. A refundable $40 dorm deposit is required at time of registration.


After 3:00PM and before 7:00PM, unless other arrangements have been made.


After class, unless other arrangements have been made.

What to bring for the Dormitory:











Bedrooms include single beds, 2 blankets, towels and wash cloths, a pillow, shared dressers and hooks for hanging clothes.

Kitchens include either a gas range or microwave, refrigerator/freezer, coffee pot, tea pots, dish soap and towels and general equipment.

You will need to bring:

Twin sheets (or a sleeping bag) and a pillowcase

Personal items such as bar soap, shampoo and toothpaste

Food items for personal food needs (there is a modern grocery store 5 minutes away and a wonderful meat market across the street with limited deli foods) or plans for carry out or restaurant dining (several restaurants within walking distance).

You may want to bring:

A portable alarm clock (for the sound sleepers)

Mosquito spray (in season, for moonlit walks or daytime lounging along the river bank)

Music equipment with earphones

An umbrella

General Dorm Guidelines:











1. Only registered students or participants in Self-directed Personal or Group Artist Retreats may register for dorm space. Sorry, but no children under age 13 (except for special adult/child classes) and no unregistered spouses or friends without special permission (and as space allows).  No pets are allowed except for our resident care-dog, P-Nut, a little Shitzu. Our previous care-dog, Poochie, Renee's sweet Sheltie, passed on to the great beyond at the end of 2013. We miss her!

 If you are allergic to dogs, please let us know!

2. The dorm is co-educational, but rooms are not, unless couples register together.

3. You make your own bed when you arrive and strip it when you leave.

4. The kitchens, bedrooms and common space are used on a clean-up-your-own stuff basis.

5. Don't want to bother with bringing your own sheets and a pillowcase?  We can provide them for an additional fee of $5.00 per bed. 

6.  Laundry room facilities are available on a pay-per-load basis.
