The nonprofit school’s board of directors hopes to attract more students and offer more classes on traditional crafts and outdoors skills in the two buildings they've moved in to over the past couple of weeks. Board President Gordon Williams and Operations Director Don Kiely showed off the new facilities a couple of weeks ago and talked about the instruction they hope to offer there.
