Welcome to Leksands folkhögskola
We offer a variety of courses based on craftwork, form and design. Some of our courses give qualifications for further studies. All our long education programs are conducted in Swedish. A good basic understanding of the language is necessary. Summer courses and workshops are conducted in Swedish, English or Japanese. Please see the information for each summer course/workshop.
Study in a pleasant environment. The school is situated on the bank of lake Siljan in one of Dalarna´s most genuine and beautiful cultural surrondings. The view over the lake and the East Dala River is wonderful. The student accomodation and the school buildings are gathered like a little village with the main building, including reception, theory classrooms and a dining hall, in the centre. We have wireless Internet at the school.
An important aspect of studying here is that students live and eat at the school ground which is good for well-being, social contacts and extra curricular activities.
We lodge up to 60 students on the campus. The rooms are very well equipped and the traditional style of the buildings gives the school a pleasant atmosphere.
Extra curricular activities
There are lots of possibilities to find spare time activities. A gymnastic-hall and a sauna are available on the campus. A 15 minutes walk takes you to the center of Leksand. Here you can find a cinema, pubs, discos, restaurants and a beautiful cultural center with a good library, as well as a sports centre with gym, indoor pool and ice Hockey rink. It is Leksand Ice Hockey Club´s home arena and also an arena for conserts and other spectacular activities. Two skislopes are easily accessible by car and the surroundings provide good possibilities for rambling, cross-country skiing or jogging.
