Craft Weekend 2024

August 8 - August 11

The Folk Art Guilds’ annual Craft Weekend will be held August 8 – 11, 2024. Course offerings range from traditional crafts to new media technology. Taking place in the lush and beautiful Finger Lakes region, Craft Weekend is an opportunity for students at all levels to explore and learn something new. Dive deeper with the support of knowledgeable instructors and fellow students and experience an unforgettable Summer event at the Folk Art Guild.

Register before JUNE 1 with code “EARLYBIRD” for discounted tuition!
Please inquire about family discounts and work-study positions.

What To Expect:

Greeters will be available to welcome and register you from 10am-12pm on Thursday, August 8th. You will be oriented to the property and directed to your sleeping space to unload your belongings. Campers are welcome to choose a spot in nearby orchards and set up tents. We will all gather for a Welcome Lunch at 12 pm. After, you will meet with your instructors and fellow students for your first afternoon together in the workshops. The Craft Weekend will conclude after Lunch on Sunday the 11th.

The event price includes daily meals, your lodging or camping, and 18 hours of formal in-studio instruction. Open studio time is available in the evening after meals. In addition, an optional Iyengar Yoga class is offered each morning before breakfast at 7am. All lodging is shared dormitory style with access to shared bathrooms, some of which are outside the room areas. Individuals will need to traverse the property on grass and gravel pathways to move between buildings and studios.

Ample time is included to enjoy Summer while discovering some of the Guilds’ varied acreage, hiking, and swimming in the pond. Enjoy meeting new people while lingering over wholesome meals prepared by our dedicated chefs. Evenings allow for more studio time if desired, or more diverse, participant-directed activities such as star gazing, primitive skills, nature walks, games, music, or storytelling around an open fire.
