Exceptional learning options located on Lake Superior’s doorstep

While folks tell us they come to Bayfield to relax, everyone seems to define that term a little differently. For some, relaxation means setting off on a kayaking adventure to explore the famous Apostle Islands sea caves. For others, relaxation is wandering out into a sunny field to pick fresh berries or apples. And still others think relaxation means releasing your creative spirit by participating in a workshop or taking a class like basketry or photography.

The good news is that for those visitors seeking a “creative” learning experience, there are many options in the Bayfield area that can fill that need. If you want to learn how to paint or draw, choose among numerous classes and workshops offered through area galleries and the Madeline Island School of Art. If you want to learn how to make jewelry or learn the skill of quilting or perhaps take advantage of the photo opportunities of Lake Superior, you can do so while you are visiting.

Where ever your creative spirit takes you – you can find satisfaction in finding a new skill that will be with you for a lifetime on the shore of Lake Superior.
