Booklist Review

Here is a listing of seminars, workshops, retreats, and residencies for those who wish to turn their talents and brainstorms into saleable items at the always-popular craft fairs held around the country. Each entry describes the courses available; the program's location, dates, student-teacher ratio, and costs; the faculty's credentials; and available accommodations. Access to the alphabetically arranged contents is provided by specialty and geographical indexes and a list of workshops suitable for young people. A top-notch resource that will interest many craftspersons. --Denise Perry Donavin

Choice Review

The first section of this guide lists short-term workshops in arts and crafts, ranging from painting and sculpture to fiber and glass craft to boat and house building. The descriptions of the 237 workshops include dates, cost, level and type of instruction, faculty, and facilities. Most are located within the US, although a number of foreign workshops are also included. The second section lists 45 residencies and retreats available to experienced artists and craftspeople. The appendixes offer access by geographic location, specialty, and workshops for young people. The introduction claims that this is a comprehensive guide, but it lists only 5 of the 19 workshops advertised in a recent issue of Handwoven, and 12 of the 17 advertised in American Craft. The information that is included, however, seems to be complete, recent, and accurate. This would be a useful starting place both for an undergraduate looking for a brief, intensive art or craft experience and for an arts faculty member seeking a residency for summer or sabbatical. -N.
