Touchstone Center for Crafts


Founded in 1972, Touchstone’s mission is to advance excellence in the arts and crafts by educating and encouraging individuals to develop technical skills, good design, and innovative expression. We achieve this through an array of media including blacksmithing, ceramics, glass, small metals/jewelry, drawing/painting, and other special topic areas. Touchstone’s 150-acre wooded campus is located in the beautiful Laurel Highlands (Farmington, PA), just 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh, near Frank Lloyd Wright’s Fallingwater, Ohiopyle State Park, and Nemacolin Resort.
