Help Touchstone’s kick off our year end giving campaign by contributing on Giving Tuesday.  Our goal is to raise money that will provide support for Studio Technician, Studio Assistant and Resident Artist programming.  These programs provide an immersive opportunity for artists to learn, network and create.  By focusing on their craft in the natural setting of Touchstone, these artists are able to explore their work and develop their creative nature.  

2016 Catalog, available in January


Touchstone is a unique three-seasons craft school in the beautiful Laurel Highlands, only 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Founded in 1972 as Pioneer Crafts Council, Touchstone's original mission was to foster interest in the preservation of traditional mountain crafts. Today, this unique craft school has expanded to include contemporary and experimental techniques in addition to traditional and historic methods in disciplines such as blacksmithing, ceramics, metals, textiles, glass, oil and watercolor painting, photography, printmaking and sculpture. As Pennsylvania's only residential craft school, Touchstone offers both beginners and seasoned artists more than one hundred week-long and weekend courses taught by some of North America's finest artists and artisans.
