Arts & Crafts Retreats & Workshops

All the arts & crafts retreats & workshops listed here are multi-day events in the USA. I’ve tried to find a variety of crafts spread across the USA (and virtual) and also tried to find events that welcome beginners. Be aware that some of these retreats & workshops have registration deadlines far in advance of the event, others have required payment schedules. Whenever possible, an image and a quote from the host’s website are included to describe the event. Please do your own research before registering for any event! Inclusion of any workshop or retreat here does not equal endorsement. I offer this list for the fun and convenience of other crafters; I am not affiliated with any of these events and receive no compensation for this listing. If you are an organizer of a multi-day craft event and would like your event to be added, please contact me. This list will be updated frequently, so check back often!
