The Mountain Institute for Lifelong Learning at Warren Wilson College is offering a full lineup of courses in May and July for adult learners.

These intensive short courses are taught by Warren Wilson faculty and staff, local artisans, and craft folk. Course topics include painting, podcasting, knitting, film making, natural history, fiber arts, birding, mushroom foraging, and fine woodworking, among many others. Classes take place on the college campus in Swannanoa, NC. In addition to the on-campus courses, the Institute offers one traveling course to Ireland.

“The Mountain Institute for Lifelong Learning is a vessel for community building, exploration, adventure, place-based learning, and the ignition of new passion for lifelong learners.,” said Anna Welton, associate dean of community and global engagement at Warren Wilson. “These courses highlight the unique strengths of Warren Wilson College, which has been a hub of experiential learning since its founding as the Asheville Farm School in 1894.”

Adults of all ages are encouraged to apply (18+). The majority of courses will take place on Warren Wilson’s campus, with one traveling course to Ireland. Housing and meal options are also available.
