Founded in 1950 as a research and studio program in the arts, the Haystack Mountain School of Crafts has no permanent faculty and awards no certificates or degrees. The school attracts a rotating group of students from across the country and internationally with a broad range of ages and experience levels. Haystack is committed to innovative and inclusive programming that preserves the historical base of craft while expanding the boundaries and definition of the field.

The majority of our faculty are invited to teach based on invitation, however we do accept inquiries from those interested in making teaching proposals. While Haystack will review all submissions, we are not realistically able to accommodate every proposal given prior commitments, interest in the school, and our desire to develop diverse programming.

Teaching proposals can be made here in SlideRoom. The application will detail all of the materials we will need from you. Haystack will review proposals on a quarterly basis and if we need additional information we will contact you directly.

All proposals will be kept on file for three years and you may update your materials during that time.
