The Folk Crafts School is a true brand of the Arkhangelsk region. It is one of the greatest institutes for supplementary education, and is a President of the Russian Federation Prize Laureate for its original design pieces. The school is based on a unique educational system from apprentice to craftsman. The programs are aimed at teaching children starting at 11 years old and over a 3-5 year period. Currently, there are 11 creative workshops in the school (artistic wood carving, artistic elm processing, bone carving, patchwork, weaving, ornamental knitting, etc.). The best works created to obtain a craftsman degree are kept in the school museum which is called “The Crafts School Craftsmen of Three Generations Museum”. The founder of the first Russian Children's Folk Crafts School is Vladimir Butchevsky, that is why natives often call it the “Burchevsky’s school”.
