A specially designed get-away for McMurray Art League artists/friends combining our CAFÉ classes (sessions focusing on various crafts taught by fellow attendees) AND two optional Touchstone-taught 2-hour classes, meals, and lodging. For all the details and schedule, click here.
ACTIVITIES: The schedule allows for CAFEs, when we can share our knowledge of various crafts with one another in a bright large studio space (or work on whatever you want). We can also take part in TWO opportunities to experience classes taught by Touchstone’s instructors. We chose a JEWELRY MAKING project and INTRO TO BLACKSMITHING as the two class offerings. We are relying on members to come forward with CAFÉ ideas.
ACCOMMODATIONS: There is a 2-story dorm which will accommodate up to 16 people – 2 single beds per room. The rooms are not fancy, but seem comfortable and offer handicap accessibility. Two rest rooms are available on each floor (total 4). We need to bring our own bedding and towels.
$90 for 2 nights lodging
$70 for 1 breakfast, 2 lunches, 1 dinner at Touchstone
$20 for studio rental
Add optional workshops:
$50 for Blacksmith class ($10 materials fee) 9:30-11:30 Wednesday May 22
$50 for Jewelry making class ($10-$30 materials fee) 2:00-4:00 Wednesday May 22
$280 TOTAL (plus materials fee)
Additional costs include dinner the first night at Maywood Restaurant, and breakfast on the way home. We are excited to offer this CAFÉ AWAY at Pennsylvania’s Premier Craft School – TOUCHSTONE CENTER FOR CRAFTS.
