Since 1971, we have sponsored workshops to give students the opportunity to study with exceptional instructors in the relaxed atmosphere of this unique village. Our workshops are held on the second floor of the Bethuel Harris Mill which sits at the end of the canal overlooking the mill pond and originally operated on water-power. This beautiful brick building was built in the 1830’s as a spinning mill for locally raised wools and it now houses our retail shop on the first floor and provides excellent studio space for our students on the second floor. It is relished for its sunlit windows, fresh air and tranquility. In order to create the atmosphere of a working studio rather than a classroom, we limit enrollment in our workshops. Most classes meet daily from 9 am to 4 pm; however, the studio is open to students 24 hours a day while class is in session. During the 5 day classes, students will have the opportunity to tour our spinning mill and listen to a talk on the history of Harrisville. Yarn and other materials for the workshops are usually included in the tuition unless otherwise noted.
Withdrawal/Refund Policy: Tuition includes a non-refundable $50.00 registration fee for each workshop. Students who must withdraw have 5 weeks prior to class for a full tuition refund less the registration fee. After this date all payments are non-refundable.
