Workshops at Bryn Athyn

Workshops at Bryn Athyn

The Workshops at Bryn Athyn present blacksmithing, stained glass, mosaic, and stone carving courses taught by nationally recognized master craftsmen. In addition to participating in hands-on workshops, participants watch demonstrations, examine original medieval artifacts, and explore Bryn Athyn’s own National Historic Landmarks.

Classes are held in the heart of the Bryn Athyn Historic District. The idyllic setting and magnificent resources offer an unparalleled learning experience. Participants not only have access to Bryn Athyn’s landmarks—including Glencairn Museum, Cairnwood Estate, and Bryn Athyn Cathedral—but they can also study both the preliminary drawings and models made by the original craftsmen and the medieval works that inspired them.

Refund/ Cancellation Policy

Bryn Athyn College makes a substantial investment when planning a workshop, and vacancies can be hard to fill even if there is a waiting list, so we must charge cancellation fees to offset the cost of these vacancies. If you cancel any time up to 30 days before the beginning of a workshop, you will receive a full refund minus a $100 cancellation fee. If you cancel later than 30 days before the beginning of the workshop, there is no refund. This policy also applies to scholarship students.

If it is necessary for Bryn Athyn College to cancel a class for any reason, students will be notified and offered another workshop or a full refund. We cannot be responsible for nonrefundable airline tickets.
