Aspire Artisan Studios & Folk School

Our Story
Established in 2015, Aspire Artisan Studios & Folk School was founded by Geraldine Johnson.

As an educator and art instructor of 25 years, our founder always dreamed of creating a space that would preserve historical and heritage arts. A communal place where art enthusiasts of all ages could come together to learn, teach and collaborate.

Through Folk School classes and workshops, our artisan instructors are dedicated to preserving historical craftsmanship. No matter your skill level, learning style or age, our instructors are intent on teaching and inspiring both beginner and seasoned artists. 

At Aspire Artisan Studios & Folk School, students can explore traditional skills and arts by participating in hands-on classes and workshops. We are a non-profit, interactive and educational organization that is devoted to our mission: To enrich the community by teaching students to develop their unique talents and artistic abilities.
