It finally came!!


I have been waiting for the 2009 Penland catalog to arrive and it came yesterday.  I got email from one of my classmates (Lower Metals 2008 ) that hers arrived last week.  I hoped that it would come on Friday.  Then, for sure, on Saturday.  Well, it finally came yesterday and I am so excited.  I really believe in life-long learning and work hard to improve my skills and grow as an artist.  Penland is such a wonderful environment to learn in.  I would encourage any artist, artisan, or craftsperson who can to take a class there.

It would be fantastic to take the summer off and attend 2-3 sessions, but alas, I must work at my day job to support my bead and metal habit.  I am off to get started on my application.  If I get accepted, I will try to blog everyday about the experience.

  1. That is great…do they do distance or must it be hands on?

  2. To my knowledge all of Penland’s classes are hands on. I do think there are other learning institutes that offer web or DVD based tutorials. I have learned a lot from books during times when I could not attend classes in person – when it comes to learning, I will take what is available to me and am really grateful when I can attend a class.

    Stunning necklace. I’ve visited the Penland School and it’s a wonderful place. I hope you get a chance to study there.
