HAYSTACK ALUMNI & FRIENDS RETREAT
September 27-October 1, 2022


Wow! We're already sold out! Please add your name to the waitlist and we will be in touch with details soon.

Is this the year you join us for some creative inspiration and connection in Deer Isle, Maine?


We are once again venturing forth this fall for our 17th Annual Alumni & Friends Retreat at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. It’s time to start dreaming about what you might make surrounded by pine trees, ocean waves, and some pretty good company.

 

NEW THIS YEAR!
The Retreat starts a day earlier than usual, running Tuesday - Saturday.
 

WORKSHOPS

  • Raku (with Erica Hood '14 and Owen Roberts '15)
  • Wet Worlds: Papermaking with Eastern Fibers: an Introduction to Sheet Forming, Watermarks, and Collage (with Deb Klotz '88, M'93)
  • Mindful Stitching (with Agusta Agustsson-Calabro '75, '90, M'97)
  • Rings From (Almost) Anything (with William Vanaria '12)
  • Monoprinting from a Gelatin Plate (with Janet Kawada '92)
  • Working in the Environment (with Professor Janna Longacre)

 

ACCOMMODATIONS

Room and meals are included in the registration fee...and the food is AMAZING!! In the Haystack tradition, rooms are assigned based on age and physical need. Please note that cabins are not heated and may involve climbing several steps depending on their location (both the Twin Cabin near Central Washrooms and Dorm options will involve climbing lots of steps)!
