MCA Weekend Workshop: May 10-13, 2018

The MCA invites you (MCA members and non members) for three and a half days of studio workshops at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts. Instruction, room and board are included in the fee. Join us to spend dedicated time in the Haystack Studios with exceptional instructors and fellow students (and to enjoy good food + views!)


Built on a cliff overlooking Jericho Bay in the Atlantic Ocean, the Haystack Mt School of Crafts has served as a muse to many who have come to create. Located on Stinson Neck in Deer Isle, Maine, the award-winning campus, designed by Edward Larrabee Barnes, was added to the National Register of Historic Places in February 2006. For more information about the campus and photos, visit Haystack’s website.


Details coming soon, registration will open in the fall.


2018 program information coming soon.
