Developing new ideas and new ways of seeing are central to Haystack’s mission. When you take a workshop at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, you are able to work in the studios day and night, you have time to experiment and discover, and to be a part of an intensive and supportive community of learners.

The Craft School Experience logoHaystack is one of five participating craft schools -with Arrowmont, Penland, Pilchuck, and Peters Valley- that have organized a new marketing initiative that focuses on schools offering intensive studio experiences.
