Haystack Mountain School of Crafts
The Haystack campus is nestled in the beautiful Maine woods and reaches down to the water's edge.



Applicants must be 18 or older and may enroll for one or more sessions, signing up for a single studio offering in each session. Except where noted in the course 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 alumni
• 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. Applicants who cannot be placed in their first choice frequently are placed in their second choice.
