"What draws me to crafts and craft schools is the camaraderie and inclusiveness. It's a language that crosses all boundaries, and a scholarship opens doors like nothing else. Touchstone offering scholarships, and being so inclusive, absolutely creates a more vibrant campus."
- artist and Pittsburgh native Boris Bally
Boris Bally's work has been featured in numerous international and national exhibitions and prominent publications and collections: Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh, and Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum.
Touchstone Center for Crafts is a unique three-seasons craft school located 60 miles southeast of Pittsburgh in the beautiful mountains of the Laurel Highlands, near Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater, Ohiopyle State Park, and Nemacolin Woodlands Resort.
Founded in 1972 as Pioneer Crafts Council, Touchstone's original mission was to foster interest in the preservation of traditional crafts. Today, this unique craft school has expanded to include contemporary and experimental techniques in disciplines such as blacksmithing, ceramics, metals & jewelry, glass, drawing & painting, and special topic areas. As Pennsylvania's premier craft school, Touchstone offers beginning and seasoned artists 1-5 day workshops taught by some of North America's finest artisans.
