2017 Registration Open

"I am pleased to announce the Workshops @ Bryn Athyn 2017 Summer course offerings are available for online viewing. Registration is open."- J. Kenneth Leap - Director of Building Arts Workshops
Art endures. It is the silent testament of the life and labor of the maker.  The decorative building arts, in particular, are characterized by the work of craftsmen with a high degree of technical skill. The master/apprentice system of the last century has nearly disappeared from the modern landscape with the result that many of the traditional arts are often characterized as "lost". In reality, this is far from the case but students are often unaware that these skills are still being taught. We're changing that.

2017 Workshops Announced

Bryn Athyn College is once again offering 5-day workshops in Blacksmithing, Mosaic, Stained Glass, and Stone Carving. Please plan to join our talented teaching artists this summer for in-depth instruction in the Decorative Building Arts. Course descriptions, instructor bio's, and dates are available to browse from the menu on the right side.

Workshops are suitable for life-long learners, craft professionals, college students, and high school upperclassmen. Small class sizes allow for individualized instruction with projects tailored to all skill levels.

All workshops are $675 which includes materials and access to studio tools.
Act 48 Professional Development  Credit and Bryn Athyn College Credit are available for an additional fee.
