2022 Workshop Season Update:
Touchstone is again offering a modified workshop season due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Workshops will run at a reduced capacity and all lodging will remain at single-occupancy. All masking and social distancing protocols will continue to be enforced within our facilities. Please review our cancellation policy* prior to registering for any workshop.
*Subject to change based on COVID-19 regulations and guidelines.
Please note the following change: All workshop participants must check out on the last day of their workshop. No overnight accomodations will be available on the last day of 2-5 day workshops.
Lodging on campus is the most convenient option for students participating in a weekend or weeklong craft workshops. Residing onsite enables you to enjoy the camaraderie and artistic cross-pollination that occurs when students live, create, and break bread on campus. If you decide to stay on campus in one of our comfortable accommodations, please note the following guidelines:
Rooms in our Campbell and Kinard residence halls have two single beds per room with two open wardrobes for storing clothing. Many people find these accommodations to be the most comfortable option at Touchstone. Each floor of the dormitory has four rooms with two shared bathrooms. The dormitories are heated, but not air-conditioned.
The cabins are nestled throughout Touchstone’s beautiful woodland campus. They are not equipped with air conditioning or heat and are served by a bathhouse located a short distance from all residential buildings. The cabins offer guests close proximity to studios and a rustic charm that is appreciated by generations of Touchstone students.
In the event that a student opts to stay off-campus or that Touchstone’s accommodations are filled to capacity, additional lodging is available at several nearby locations. Please mention your workshop at Touchstone when making lodging reservations to be eligible for the special discounts that many of these establishments offer to Touchstone students.
Lodging options are currently available as single-occupancy and open to workshop participants only for the 2022 season. See current lodging pricing and availability below.
Touchstone is not responsible for any incurred travel or lodging fees through 3rd party agencies such as Airbnb because of cancellation of a workshop, nor are we responsible for any nonrefundable deposits or prepaid arrangements made in relation to your workshop, regardless of whether the workshop is held or cancelled.
