aystack is an international craft school pursuing new ideas in craft through innovative programs, such as our intensive studio workshops
, a digital fabrication lab (the Haystack fab lab
), Maine programs
that include intensive programs for high school students, workshops for Deer Isle and Blue Hill Peninsula residents, workshop for adults from throughout the state, community-based artist residencies
, and retreats. These initiatives provide opportunities for program participants to investigate materials, technology, craft, art, and the creative process. The school’s retreat setting and award-winning campus provide the ideal location for transformative and interdisciplinary learning experiences.
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.
Haystack 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.
