Thomas is a small rural mountain town on the edge of Canaan Valley and the Monongahela National Forest. It has an enthusiastic and growing arts community, and is home to the wildly popular music venue, The Purple Fiddle.


Its dramatic natural beauty makes it a mecca for artists and writers, as well as birders, backpackers, cyclists, kayakers, and cross-country skiers.


All workshops are $500 and include meals, events, and receptions. Travelling partners can also enjoy workshop amenities including meals, events, and receptions for $200. Participants will be resposible for finding their own lodging and a list of B$Bs, hotels and motels in the area will be provided.


Workshop size will be limited appropriately. Please get in touch for details about the workshop you are interested in the space provided below.
