It's that time of year: looking back and looking ahead.  After an abbreviated season in 2020, we are extra grateful for the robust program we were able to offer in 2021. Thank you to everyone who came to visit,  and we hope to see even more of you in 2022.

Just before the season ended, executive director Mary Jo Murphy squeezed out time to be a student at Snow Farm. The experience gave her a fresh view of what happens in our 5-day craft workshops.

The Work-Study Program at Snow Farm is an opportunity for students, artists and craftspeople (ages 18+) to work at Snow Farm in various capacities in exchange for tuition-free workshops, housing, and meals when the dining hall is open. Now it its second year, we would like to introduce some of the dynamic people who have joined the Snow Farm community as work-study participants.

This year, after the long months of 2020, the light-filled days of summer feel extra special. Before the pandemic, we chose illumination as the topic of our 2021 theme week, August 22 - 27.  Now it feels just right to end the summer with seven workshops explorng Bright Ideas: Illumination & Craft. We hope you'll join us!
