Welcome. Haystack’s core summer workshops include one- and two-week sessions in blacksmithing, clay, fiber, glass, graphics, metals, and wood. Workshops are open to adults 18 years or older of all skill levels – from beginners to advanced professionals. Studios are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week, with classes scheduled Monday through Friday. The Haystack community is made up of approximately 85 participants, including staff, students, and internationally known faculty artists. Instructors determine the format of their workshops.
