Haystack School  Haystack Mountain School of Crafts - residency, workshops, scholarships- wood/fiber/graphics/glass/metals/blacksmithing/clay/fab lab. Deer Isle, ME.


Special thanks to everyone who attended and supported this year's Gala and Private Auction. The event raised a record amount supporting Haystack's scholarships and community programs. ⠀
With the generosity of our donors, we were able to fully endow the newly created Roberto Lugo Minority Scholarship. It was an incredible evening!⠀


Prepping for @haystack_school annual Gala! This summer party and fundraiser supports the school's scholarships and community programs.

🔊 Seeking, fleeing, adopted, stolen, here, unknown, I don't know. These are the words that start to describe the ways in which our forbearers came to, or were here, in America. @ayumihorie, one of the summer conference presenters, lead a workshop in which participants stamped bricks with these circumstances and the century in which they or their ancestors "became American". It's a project with ambiguities, imperfection and complexity so it allows for interpretation of the narratives that we all tell about our family histories. It pulls many different groups together based on collective histories. A brick wall was built and collapsed, a fitting a metaphor for the times we live in! #thethingthatmakesthething #haystackmountainschoolofcrafts #thecraftschoolexperience #ayumihorie #brick #socialengagement #sociallyengaged #brickmaking #immigration #immigrationstory #maine #craft #craftvideo
