Craft, Culture & Community

Upcoming Events

Through the preservation of craft and culture, we are uniting a local and global community. We are committed to teaching and perpetuating the arts and crafts of the written word, to supporting writers, artists, and artisans, and to revitalizing a distressed historic neighborhood.

JOIN THE MOVEMENT – HTTPS://WWW.KICKSTARTER.COM/PROJECTS/THORNWILLOW/THE-THORNWILLOW-MAKERS-VILLAGE?REF=37H2IK IT IS WITH GREAT EXCITEMENT THAT WE ANNOUNCE OUR MOST AMBITIOUS ENDEAVOR YET: TWO GREAT PROJECTS, WORKING IN TANDEM, TO MAKE THE WORLDS OF FINE PRINTING AND HAND-CRAFTSMANSHIP MORE ACCESSIBLE TO ALL.

We are in the midst of a Capital Campaign to restore a historic building that will provide two Residences and the first Bookstore in downtown Newburgh in more than 50 years. It will support workshops, fellowships, readings, performances, and be an anchor for our 21st Century Arts & Crafts Movement.

We have received support from the State of New York, The Ford Foundation, Bloomberg Philanthropies, The Newburgh Institute, and the Rowley Foundation. We need your help to bridge the gap in our funding so that we can begin work on the Corner Building. The project is shovel ready and just needs the remaining funds to begin work immediately.

The Thornwillow Institute is dedicated to passing down the arts and crafts of the written word which, increasingly, are endangered.  We do this through partnership with institutions and fellowships with individual artists, students, and makers.
