    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.

  2. Hey folks, my name is Adam Kenney and I am the Executive Director of Touchstone Center for Crafts in Farmington, PA. Touchstone is a residential craft school located in the Laural Highlands. We operate over eight studios in various craft forms, but our flagship studio is definitely the Hart Moore Blacksmith Studio. It's one of the most comprehensive facilities in the region dedicated to the art ans science of moving hot metal. I started last July and am looking for ways to make Touchstone a more valuable resource for blacksmiths in the region (and beyond). I will be posting links to workshops
