Good place to stay if you have a car. Transport to the course can usually be arranged with other participants /or teachers. Mid-range price. Quote “Stecco course” for a discount.
If you are travelling in a group or with your family, there are apartments/villas to rent in the local area. For example see http://www.italybyitaly.com/dettaglio.php?id=2161.
Some accommodation is also available at a nearby catholic retreat house (see www.casagesumaestro.com ), which is run by a small group of nuns. You really need some notion of Italian to communicate comfortably. Breakfast is included and evening meals can be arranged. Simple but spotlessly clean. Suitable for unpretentious travellers, booking have to be made directly to the course organizer (firstname.lastname@example.org) and are subject to availability.
Without a car: from Venice airport you will need to take a bus to Mestre station from the airport then a train to Vicenza and another train, or a bus, to Thiene.
In alternative there is a private taxi company for airport transport : http://www.nccthienese.com/
