We paused workshops with the advent of covid but we are in the process of restarting outdoors. We need volunteers of all kinds! Would you like to teach a workshop? Would you like to facilitate a workshop happening? Get in touch at freeschooolteam@gmail.com


The Edmonton River Valley Free School Society (est. 2016) is a community-run skills sharing group in Edmonton. Our mission is to build community and resiliency through the love of learning—with minimal monetary exchange. Therefore, our workshops are always free except for occasional material costs.


We have hosted over 77 workshops including welding, weaving, salve-making, kimchi making, grass basketry, ginger beer making, clay paint and plastering, taekwondo, knot tying, willow basketry, vegan cooking, reconciliation and beading, worm composting, rocket stove designing, native plant identification, cookie decorating, microgreens, bicycle maintenance and more!
