2021 Workshop Season Update:

Touchstone is pleased to be able to offer a modified 2021 workshop season. Based on best practices related to Covid-19, workshops will run at a reduced capacity of 6 participants, all multi-occupancy lodging has been converted to single-occupancy, and mask and social distancing protocols will be strictly enforced. Our updated cancellation policy* can be found​​

HERE and our Covid-19 Policies and Procedures* can be found​​ HERE *Subject to change.

Touchstone understands that the value of a student’s overall campus experience extends beyond the studio, and we assure our guests that the presentation and quality of food and beverage service will be maintained at a high standard. We regret that we cannot accommodate kosher diets, however vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free foods are available with advanced notice.

Note: For those students not purchasing a meal plan, please know that Touchstone has very limited food preparation facilities available to guests. There are a microwave and refrigerator in the Dining Hall for guests’ convenience, but any type of substantive cooking (except over a campfire) will not be possible. Those who intend to cook over the campfire must bring their own cookware and supplies.
