The Craft School Experience logo

Haystack is one of five participating craft schools -with Arrowmont, Penland, Pilchuck, and Peter Valley- that have organized a new marketing initiative that focuses on schools offering intensive studio experiences. The launch of The Craft School Experience took place from November 7-9, 2014 at SOFA Chicago, where there was an exhibit featuring work by artists who have been influenced by their experience at the five participating art schools.
