Peters Valley School of Craft has always made the health and safety of its community a top concern. We are carefully monitoring conditions associated with the spread of COVID-19, and are following the guidance of the State of New Jersey Department of Health and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations on keeping commercial establishments safe.
We are taking the following steps effective immediately:
- Face masks are required when inside buildings on our campus regardless of vaccination status. Peters Valley School of Craft is located on land owned by the National Park Service and we must adhere to their guidelines which have recently changed. To protect the health of those who live, work and visit national parks and National Park Service (NPS) facilities, NPS is immediately re-implementing a mask requirement for employees, visitors, partners and contractors. This includes all staff, students, instructors and visitors to Peters Valley School of Craft.

- Our Administrative office is open from 9am to 5pm Monday through Friday, please call with any questions. (973) 948-5200.

If you have any questions please email email@example.com. We will do our best to keep you informed and do our part to prevent, reduce and slow the spread of the virus.
The New Jersey State Council on the Arts 2021 COVID Critical Needs Program has provided partial support for the personal protective equipment (PPE) and safeguarding equipment that are part of Peters Valley's COVID safety procedures.
2022 Workshop Season:
We are excited to once again be open for in-person workshops! The entire staff here at Peters Valley has been working hard to put policies and procedures in place to keep us all safe. Here are some updates:
- Face masks are required when inside buildings on our campus regardless of vaccination status.
- Class Size: Peters Valley has always offered small classes to ensure individualized attention and ample equipment usage. Class sizes vary from 6 to 12 students depending on studio size.
- Lodging: Most on-campus lodging will consist of single rooms, however double rooms are available upon request. Rooms will be extremely limited and will sell-out very fast. We encourage off-campus lodging such as Airbnb, Vrbo, camping and local cabins.

- Cleaning & Safety: Studios will follow strict cleaning routines and air purifiers, equipment sanitizers, and sanitizing stations have been installed.
