About Wildacres 

WildAcres is a conference center offering its facilities to nonprofit groups that conduct educational or cultural programs and seminars. It is a true retreat, undisturbed by through traffic or noises of the city. There are 2 lodges, a dining hall, a library and auditorium, a pottery and printmaking studio, a jewelry studio and lapidary, as well as multiple classroom spaces. All sleeping rooms have private baths and either two twin beds, or one double and one twin bed. Meals are served family style. WildAcres is situated on 1600 acres at an elevation of 3300 feet atop a mountain called Pompey’s Knob, near the Blue Ridge Parkway. It is halfway between Asheville and Blowing Rock in North Carolina’s Blue Ridge Mountains. Due to health regulations, no pets are allowed. For further information about the facility and directions, please visit the website: 

Redux is happy to announce that we are confident that we can have a successful return to Wildacres in 2021, and we would love to see you there!    

(October 25-31, 2021 session information is TBA this summer) 
Please understand the following adjustments are being made this summer to ensure everyone can participate with utmost health, safety, and peace of mind: 
  1. Wildacres property is working at a required 50% capacity, meaning Redux cannot have more than 50 people on premises in total, this is pertaining to and including students, our teaching artists, and Redux staff. 
  2. Given this capacity limitation, we are offering only 4 workshops each week (in July, October TBD) and we will be capping all classes at 9-10 person maximum* (depending on classroom size and class popularity).  
  3. Given this year’s capacity limitation, you will notice a $100 price increase for all workshops that we believe you will see as reasonable and comparable for the smaller class sizes and single (no roommate) room accommodations that are being given at no additional cost. 
  4. Dining will be cafeteria-style rather than family style, and table capacities will be reduced as well. 
  5. All room assignments will be single rooms (no assigned roommates). Shared rooms will be accommodated only with partners or travel companions at the same registration price per person – you may request this roommate accommodation with your registration. 
  6. Room furnishings are limited to sheets on the beds only. There will be no bedspreads or pillows in the rooms. As guests you are allowed and encouraged of course to bring your own blankets and pillows. Also brand new (still in package) pillows will be available for purchase from Wildacres for around $10. 
  7. Masks will be required (in all shared spaces and when interacting within 6ft of others, with exception of active eating/drinking in dining hall), and vaccinations are encouraged for all attendees. A number of our instructors and staff are already vaccinated. 
  8. We encourage vaccination before attendance this year, this is to best protect you and everyone around you. 
We hope this is good news for you, and that you will be able to join us at Wildacres this year!
