Come and welcome winter with a reception at The Clearing Folk School’s Jens Jensen Center Dec. 5, 3-6 pm. Wine, fine cheeses and specialty chocolates can all be relished while enjoying some live seasonal music with George Sawyn. The beautifully decorated Jens Jensen Center at 12171 Garrett Bay Road in Ellison Bay is a delight for the senses. Call 920.854.4088 for reservations; cost is $15 per person or $25 per couple.
Next is The Clearing’s Annual Christmas Open House, scheduled for Dec. 7 & 8, from 10 am to 4 pm at the Jens Jensen Center. Come and enjoy mulled apple cider and tasty treats from our volunteers while cozying up to the crackling fire. The Clearing’s indoor Christmas forest is something to behold. The Open House is also a perfect time to register for Winter Program classes. This free event is open to the public.
Registration is now open for The Clearing Folk School’s Winter Program classes, which start Jan. 3 and end Feb. 27. More than 90 adult day-classes, many of which run multiple weeks, are being offered this year. In addition to an impressive variety of classes, the Winter Program represents something unique and wonderful about Door County – an amazing group of 80 volunteer instructors who generously share their time, along with their considerable talent, for the benefit of the community.
Winter Program classes are published online at theclearing.org. Catalogs are scheduled for delivery to Clearing student mailboxes around Dec. 1, and are also available at the Jens Jensen Center during business hours, Monday through Friday from 8 am to 4 pm.
