Shake Rag Alley Center for the Arts 
— a Wellspring of Creativity in Arts & Crafts —

Arts and crafts workshops and cultural events in a wide variety of visual and literary arts take place at Shake Rag Alley, in the historic heart of Mineral Point, Wisconsin.

Early miners clustered their cabins in the valley around Federal Spring. The spring is still bubbling, and today a nonprofit arts education center, Shake Rag Alley, Inc., occupies nine buildings in the 2.5-acre oasis of gardens, trees, and rambling paths. Shake Rag Alley hosts a vibrant children's program, concerts, and other cultural events, as well as adult art workshops.

 Students come from all over the country to join in the creative fun that takes place here. Several buildings are used as classrooms, and some summer classes happen under the trees or under tents. Additional classroom space is available in studios nearby in this artist community that has 17 art studio-galleries within just a few blocks of Shake Rag Street.

For more information about Mineral Point, see the town's web site.

Lodging is available on or near campus in historic, charming rooms. See Shake Rag Alley Lodging.
