Applicants must be 18 or older to apply for sessions as outlined on the application. Except where noted in the workshop descriptions, workshops are open to all levels of students, from beginners to advanced. Enrollment in each studio is limited. Applications are reviewed competitively and selections are based on the need to have:

• a balance between first-time students and past participants
• a balance between first-time students and past participants
• a broad geographical distribution of participants, and
• a wide range of students from varied backgrounds and skill levels—from beginners to advanced professionals—who have a clear sense of purpose as to why they want to take the workshop/s they have selected.

Application is for an entire one-week or two-week session. When filling out the application form, please indicate your first and second workshop choices. Every effort is made to place applicants in their first workshop choice. However, due to the high volume
of applications to some workshops, applicants who cannot be placed in their first choice frequently are placed in their second choice. Enrollment in each studio is limited. Applications are reviewed competitively.

General applicants will pay a non-refundable application fee of $50 directly to Haystack*. Upon notification of acceptance into a workshop, a $250 deposit for each session, for regular enrollment, is required and will be applied to tuition. For glass workshops, a deposit for half of the tuition rate will be required. All tuition, room and board fees are due and payable in advance.

*If paying by check, checks should be made payable to Haystack. Foreign payments must be in US dollars payable in US funds.
